Amy's goodbye

To quote the great philosopher Winnie the Pooh “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

With that I am announcing my retirement from coaching. It has been an incredible journey and I am so lucky to have spent the last 32 years at Stanford.

The highlight of coaching for me has always been in the gym. I loved working with players and watching them grow and develop over four years. I loved putting the puzzle together every year with our outstanding staff. I had so many great times with Tara, Kate and Tempie and I will miss our mostly productive staff meetings.

There have been incredible highs over the 32 years. I have coached outstanding players and people and they have made me a better person. I am so proud of the women who have come through our program. I am so proud of the many accomplishments of our program – Pac-12 Championships, Final Fours and National Championships.

To our Fast Break Club members and passionate fansI thank you. There are so many of you I now call friends. Your love and support has meant so much to our team and to me. To the ATFC, you are the best! You are so generous with your support and love of Stanford Women’s Basketball. You have all been on this journey with me – we have shared the pure joy of winning a big game and the pain of losing.

Thank you for being a friend!
