FAIRBANKS (AP) -- The University of Alaska Fairbanks has launched a nationwide search for a new women's basketball coach.
Jenny Benson ended her nine-year tenure Friday to spend more time being a mom.
UAF athletic director Cory Schwartz the position will be advertised in national publications and on the Internet. She also will check out the NCAA women's Final Four this weekend in Atlanta.
Schwartz said she wants to move quickly in finding the next head of the Lady Nanooks.
For one thing, now is the time to start recruiting for next season. Schwartz said it's also important to reassure returning players that a new coach will be in place in the fall.
