Meet Jane Albright--A CLJournal Subscriber

Jane Albright is the women’s basketball head coach at the University of Nevada. She has over 30 years as a NCAA collegiate head coach. During her first season as the head coach of Nevada, Albright became the program's all-time winningest first-year head coach with an 18-14 record, while going 10-6 in the Western Athletic Conference. Following her first year at Nevada, Albright was honored by the WBCA with the Kay Yow "Heart of a Coach" award, exemplifying her biblical principles over the course of her career. The award is presented by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which Albright currently serves on the local Board of Directors.

Prior to taking the position at Nevada Albright coached at Wichita State and at the University of Wisconsin. Albright is the winningest coach in Badger history with a 161-107 record (.600) from 1994-2003. The Badgers made seven postseason appearances in nine seasons, including five trips to the NCAA Tournament with Albright at the helm. She also helped lead the Badgers to eight consecutive winning seasons, after they had experienced losing seasons in nine of the previous 10 seasons before Albright took over as head coach.

Albright was the winner of the 2014 Carol Eckman Award. The Carol Eckman Award is presented annually to an active WBCA member coach who exemplifies Eckman's spirit, integrity and character through sportsmanship, commitment to the student-athlete, honesty, ethical behavior, courage and dedication to purpose.
