Fresh off of coaching Team USA Women’s Basketball to a record straight 7 gold medals at the Olympics, and serious job probes from the WNBA, Coach Dawn Staley confirmed that University of South Carolina is where she belongs.
“I was counting down the days for when I had to come into the office. The closer I got, I was like, I’m not ready,” Staley said with short laugh. “Then you come in here and you prep for practice, and you go out for practice, and you see what you’ve got and immediately I said, this is where I belong!
“We’ve got a pretty darn-good team that’s committed to each other and that’s committed to playing basketball the right way. They’ve helped me rejuvenate. It’s going to be pretty fun.”
