Hall of Famer Cynthia Cooper-Dyke returns to USC as head women's basketball coach

Hall of Famer Cynthia Cooper-Dyke is returning to Southern California as the Trojans' head women's basketball coach.

USC hired Cooper-Dyke on Thursday to replace Michael Cooper, who quit last month after four seasons.

Cooper-Dyke played on the Trojans' NCAA championship teams in 1983 and 1984 before a lengthy professional career in Spain, Italy and the WNBA. She won the new league's first four consecutive titles and its first two MVP awards before retiring from the Houston Comets in 2000.

Cooper-Dyke coached last season at Texas Southern, where she won a school-record 20 games just one year after a five-win season. She also has been a head coach at UNC-Wilmington and Prairie View A&M, compiling a combined 150-106 record as a head coach.

USC finished 11-20 last season, Cooper's fourth year.
