Every experienced coach had to start somewhere. So, maybe she will be a good coach.

I would argue that Seton could be a great place for a young coach to start out. The school rarely gets the elite club players needed to compete for league titles and to advance in the state tournament. The girls there just want to have a chance to play. So, this could be a perfect place for someone to start out....there's less pressure to win it all
