University of Minnesota Director of Athletics Norwood Teague is set to introduce Marlene Stollings as the 11th head coach in the history of the Golden Gopher women's basketball program today in a press conference at 4 p.m. Fans will be able to watch the introductory press conference live on Gophersports.com through Gopher All-Access free of charge.
Stollings comes to Minnesota after two successful years at Virginia Commonwealth University, where she led the Rams to a 33-29 record and one of the top turnarounds in the nation in 2013-14. Prior to her stint at VCU, Stollings led a one-year resurgence at Winthrop University in 2011-12, where the Eagles posted just their second winning season in the last 26 years of the program.
