On May 23, Rutgers announced the hiring of veteran coach Coquese Washington as head coach. She succeeds legendary Hall of Fame Coach C. Vivian Stringer, who announced her retirement on April 30. Please visit this link for details. You can view the May 24 Press Conference here.
Coach Stringer in her 50-year career led three different teams to the Final Four and took Rutgers twice -- in 2000 and again in 2007. In 2018, she won her 1000th game at home in front of a huge crowd, watched by dozens of her former players from her coaching tenure at Cheney State and Iowa, as well as many of her former Rutgers players.

The 2021-22 season was led by Associate Head Coach Tim Eatman, filling in for Coach Stringer. The team compiled an 11-20 record and bowed out of the BIG 10 Tournament in the second round.
Also last year, the beloved Rutgers Athletic Center -- the RAC -- became Jersey Mike's Arena. This season, the court will be named the "C. Vivian Stringer Court," to be dedicated at a special ceremony.
