Stony Brook names McCombs head women's basketball coach

Stony Brook, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Incoming Stony Brook athletic director Shawn Heilbron has named former Auburn assistant coach Caroline McCombs as the new head women's basketball coach.

McCombs replaces Beth O'Boyle, who recently accepted the head coaching position at VCU after guiding the Seawolves to a 24-9 record and a WNIT bid this past season.

"We are thrilled to welcome Caroline to Stony Brook as the leader of our women's basketball program," Heilbron said. "Our goal is to build a championship caliber program that contends for America East titles and NCAA Tournament berths on an annual basis. I believe that Caroline brings the experience and vision that will allow the Seawolves to reach new heights.

"More importantly, Caroline demonstrated an ability and desire to be a mentor to young women, and she embraces our mission to develop leaders on the court and in the classroom. I am excited for each of our student-athletes who will now have the opportunity to excel athletically and academically under her leadership."

McCombs spent the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Auburn.

She will be introduced at a press conference Friday.
