BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — After the program's fourth NCAA Tournament appearance during her tenure, UB is losing its head coach. Felisha Legette-Jack will return to her alma mater after ten seasons with the Bulls. Syracuse University announced the hire on Saturday.

Legette-Jack has the most wins in the history of UB Women's Basketball and led the Bulls to three MAC titles, including this past season. Legette-Jack is the first women's basketball player to have her number retired by Syracuse University. She received the honor from SU earlier this season.

She led the Bulls to a 343-279 record during her ten years as head coach. Buffalo alumna Kristen Sharkey will be the active head coach while UB searches for Legette-Jack's long term replacement.
