Xavier promotes Amy Waugh

CINCINNATI (AP) — Xavier has promoted Amy Waugh (WAH) to women’s basketball coach, a person familiar with the move told The Associated Press.

Waugh was an assistant to Kevin McGuff the last two seasons. McGuff left for Washington after Xavier was knocked out in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Waugh planned to meet with returning players Wednesday, said the source speaking on condition of anonymity because the school had not announced her promotion.

She was a point guard for the Musketeers from 1999-2003. Waugh also was an assistant coach for one season at Youngstown State and five seasons at Wake Forest.
