The Jayco Rangers will be seeking a new Head Coach after Larissa Anderson advised she would not be seeking a new contract.
Anderson, who had a successful stint as SEABL Women’s Head Coach at the Rangers which produced 4 SEABL titles prior to taking on the WNBL team for the past four seasons, including a WNBL Grand Final appearance in 2016/17, has had a tough last two seasons as the Jayco Rangers were struck with injuries to key players and some inconsistent performances.
Jayco Rangers CEO Graeme Allen says Anderson has had a strong influence on the program as both a player and coach over a long period.
”Larissa has been involved in coaching our elite SEABL and WNBL basketball programs for almost a decade, and her contribution has been significant”, said Allen. “Her passion for the team and commitment to the playing group has always been her strength and she will always be a welcome member of the Rangers family.”
The Jayco Rangers will now commence the process of seeking out a new WNBL Head Coach to lead the club as it endeavours to make WNBL 2019-20 the biggest Rangers season yet.
That search will be rigorous according to Jayco Rangers GM Steven Icke, with both new and experienced candidates sought after to find the best available coach to take the reins of our WNBL program going forward.
“At the centre of any champion team is a Head Coach driving the performance standards that leads to a strong performance-based culture”, said Icke. “The Jayco Rangers will now start the process of finding that person who can drive our WNBL program towards the results we all aspire to.”
