Carnegie Mellon athletic director Susan Bassett has named Jacquie Hullah as head coach of the women’s basketball program. The former Dartmouth coach will succeed Gerri Seidl, who resigned in March after 27 years at the helm.
“Led by the vision and passion for excellence by Athletics Director Susan Bassett, I am excited and honored to join Carnegie Mellon University as the next head women’s basketball coach,” Hullah said. “The opportunity to build a winning tradition at a world-class university while competing in the most competitive Division III conference, the UAA, is a unique and special challenge that I eagerly embrace.”
In 1993, Hullah was selected as head coach of the Arizona State women’s program. She spent three years leading the Sun Devils before accepting a post with the Seattle Reign of the American Basketball League. Hullah spent two years coaching in the professional league.
“My first priority is to focus on developing the talents of our current players and to lead them towards the attainment of their highest goals. I look forward to sharing with prospective scholar-athletes the limitless possibilities that an education from Carnegie Mellon University has to offer them,” Hullah said.
