Following Shonda Stanton’s departure for Indiana, Marshall made quick work of their coaching search, announcing today that Jen Steele is the program’s new head coach.

Steele, who makes a lateral move from Jacksonville in the ASun, will take over a Herd squad that earned an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament last season and ended the year ranked in the top 25 thanks to a strong regular season campaign and despite being eliminated in the conference tournament's semifinals.

The JU Dolphins’ leader for the past three seasons, Steele earned eighty-six career victories at Jacksonville, including a thirty-win 2017 season. The Dolphins finished sixth in the conference standings (of seven teams) and were eliminated in the first round of the loser’s bracket of the conference tournament.

A Longwood graduate, Steele’s resume also includes stints as an assistant at George Mason, as well as her alma mater. Though Jacksonville was her first Division I head coaching position, she also had been head coach at Randolph College, a Division III school.
