Athens, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Joni Crenshaw, who spent the last three seasons at the University of Georgia as the associate head coach, was named the Lady Bulldogs' new head coach on Sunday.
She becomes the second full-time head coach in program history. Andy Landers retired last month after 36 years as the Lady Bulldogs' coach.
Before joining Landers' staff in 2011, Crenshaw was an assistant coach at LSU (2010-11), Alabama (2008-10), Louisiana Tech (2005-08) and Troy (2002-05).
"After a national search, it became evident that Joni was the perfect person to lead our program," athletic director Greg McGarity said in a statement. "Joni brings the intangibles that parallel success -- character, experience and a tireless energy to lead our program. We are confident she will do a tremendous job leading Georgia Basketball into the future."
Landers compiled a 862-299 record at Georgia, making him one of only seven college basketball coaches -- women's or men's -- to record 850 wins at a single NCAA Division I school.
