And they say Twitter is an unending void of bots, spam, and sycophants. But today, we finally know that it also helps break news! New Cal Women's Basketball Head Coach Lindsay Gottlieb tweeted this mere moments ago:
Official release nxt wk, but since it's out, let me just say that @coachkai is a ROCK STAR coach and person and we're lucky to have her!
@CoachKai is the Twitter account for Kai Felton, an Assistant Coach at Oregon. Here is some more information on Coach Felton from her GoDucks.com page:
Kai Felton became one of the newest members of the Oregon women’s basketball coaching staff when she was hired on April 14, 2009, by head coach Paul Westhead.
Felton spends the majority of her time recruiting in California, helping bringing in Ariel Thomas (Sacramento, Calif.) and Deanna Weaver (Santa Clara, Calif.), as part of the Ducks’ 2010, five-member recruiting class which also included Ashley Buis, Danielle Love and Chynna Miley.
In addition to her tireless recruiting efforts, Felton works with Oregon’s backcourt.
Coach Felton is a young coach, who has a lot of experience recruiting in Northern California. That's great! More information to follow, but this news is now confirmed by Coach Gottlieb herself. Good luck to Coach Felton and Coach Gottlieb. GO BEARS!
