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.
