What an absolutely perfect scenario it is for Kansas State... again.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - March 18

Wildcat Nation,

First off, let me offer a special thanks to the many fans who sent notes as we began the search for our new women's basketball coach last Sunday.  The passion and support you continue to show is one of the many reasons we were able to attract such a quality pool of candidates.

As you may know, earlier today we announced that Jeff Mittie, one of the winningest active coaches in Division I, has agreed to become the ninth head women's basketball coach in K-State history. His accolades as a coach speak for themselves - 454 career wins, 15 postseason appearances, nine conference titles in four different leagues, winner of nine conference championships and the reputation of being a top-notch recruiter - and Coach Mittie, his wife Shanna and children Logan, Madison and Jordan are a perfect fit for Manhattan and Kansas State.
