I spoke to departing IU women’s basketball coach Felisha Legette-Jack by phone a few minutes ago, and she was disappointed, but understanding, of Fred Glass’ decision.
“This is a business where you survive and advance. You do your best and pray its enough to sustain you,” she said. “When the time comes that they say, ‘It’s enough, and we can’t move forward with you,’ you respect them and thank them for the opportunity. You don’t get shocked or get down.
“I’m teaching the game of life, and I want to teach it at this level of basketball. I preach this message that basketball is a microcosm of life.
“I think people here have been very fair with me, and I have no bad feelings.”
Legette-Jack said she never had expectations for anything other than a positive outcome from a program that has struggled to find sustained success.
“I really believed that I could turn this around. It didn’t happen,” she said. “Coaches left to be head coaches, coaches left for other reasons, and when you don’t have continuity, it pulls in your time frame a little bit.
“I did the best I could, and I will coach again. I know for a fact I can coach. I believe I can coach, I can motivate people to something bigger than themselves.
“My prayer is they bring somebody into this program that loves it as much as I loved it.”
