NORMAN, Okla. -

The University of Oklahoma has named Jennie Baranczyk as the next head coach for the Sooner women's basketball team.

Baranczyk, will take the head job after nine seasons at Drake.

"This is a truly exciting day for our university and athletics department, as we welcome Jennie Baranczyk as our new head women's basketball coach," said Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione. "Her track record of overseeing creative and effective offenses, and producing high win totals, conference championships and postseason appearances during her time at Drake certainly appealed to our search committee as it evaluated the very competitive candidate pool. But her mastery of the head coaching role extends far beyond the court, and it's clear that her personal and professional values align with ours.

Baranczykr will replace Sherri Coale, who retired last month after 25 seasons with OU.
