    Texas and UTSA play nonconference games regularly, every season from 2013-2014 to 2019-2020 in fact...could be very awkward.

    Really glad to hear she’s in a good place re: Texas. She left the program in a much better position than she found it.

    I've been checking their web site to get a feel of what assistants KA would hire, but it's still listing the former staff. But they have KA's picture plastered on the front page. Guess they don't have as large of a social media dept to actively update their pages.

    I wonder if they have their own message board?

    New Women's Basketball Coach - Karen Aston

    They don't have a specific forum for their WBB program. Those that posted are pleased with the hire. I watched the PC, can’t help but think whether some of her responses were really thought out well as she appeared be caught off guard, like why UTSA and what her short term goals are for that program.

    Wasn't Jamie Carey with Jalie Mitchell at North Texas? Hmm...that's interesting.

    Well the UTSA vs UNT matchup will certainly have a Longhorn background to it.

    Yep - a lot of Karen Aston coaching tree crossover:
    • Jamie Carey, Empress Davenport
    • Jalie Mitchell, Kelby Jones

    Jalie is kinda on thin ice at NT because of her record. Karen's got at least 4 years with UTSA to turn that around.

    Roughly half her final salary at Texas but nothing to sneeze at...
