Guru's AP Poll Trivia: A Summer Look At Coaches Appearance History

By Mel Greenberg

First, as part of a Wednesday morning Guru-palooza post fiesta this is one of several posts -- the others are some local college news, leading with another Elena Delle Donne award, the philly summer league report, the combo wash-connecticut game as part of the weekly WNBA report, and this post, which, now that the 73 coaching changes have subsided, shows the summer post-season look at coaches appearances in the AP poll after the changes -- the most prominent of which has Pat Summitt off the active list after being No. 1 forever following her move to coach emeritus at Tennessee.

She's still the all-time leader and will likely stay there forever considering her lead on the overall list.

Here's the updated file.


Quick hits on AP poll (week 19– for coaches’ appearances week No. 19)
(This is 632nd poll after week 19). (Records on pages through week 19 -- Final –3/12/12)

This is the summer sheet updating the coaching changes involving those with AP ranked teams following the end of last season.

The next new file kicks in this fall following the AP preseason poll for the 2012-13 season.

Incidentally, happened to notice that prior to what next week's Women's Basketball Hall of Fame announcement for 2013 class inductees, the only coaches on the front part of the all-time list not currently inducted are No. 7 Jim Foster at Ohio State, No. 8 former Penn State coach Rene Portland, No.13 former Texas-Duke coach Gail Goestenkors (may not have enough years), No. 16 Seattle and former Long Beach-Arizona coach Joan Bonvicini, No. 17 Texas A&M coach Gary Blair, No. 23 Oklahoma coach Sherrie Coale (who also may not have enough years), while No. 24 Baylor coach Kim Mulkey is in as a player, and No. 27 Former Western Kentucky and Nebraska coach Paul Sanderford.
