On April 24, 2019, Joe Legerski, 16-year head coach resigned suddenly without giving a reason. Gearld Mattinson, a 12-year assistant and currently assistant head coach was promoted to replace Lergerski as head coach.

    The Cowgirl roster for 2017/18 consisted of 14 players with 6 foreigners and 0 from Wyoming. The 2018/19 roster listed 16 total with 10 foreigners and 1 from Wyoming. The 2019/20 roster shows 13 total with 5 foreigners and 3 from Wyoming. Apparently there is a new recruiting philosophy taking shape in Laramie. Appears to be a departure from an emphasis on foreigners toward more domestic talent.

    Lergerski and Jankovic both depart apparently at about the same time and rather suddenly. The assistant that was known for his ability to recruit foreign talent, that excelled at developing players and coaching post players left a highly successful program with apparently no job prospect at the time.

    I want Brooke Sthehr to succeed as head coach of the Lady Techsters--as a winning coach, as a mentor to the young women in her program, as a motivator for her players to do well academically and be prepared for life after basketball, and as a model and builder of character for her team. I want her to win in every phase of coaching. I just hope and pray that she has not made a bad choice with Jankovic.

    Joe Lergerski thought the same thing, but it appears that somewhere between Europe and Laramie something went very wrong.

    This! ^^^ The transgenderization of collegiate track and swimming is already happening, and the NCAA has refused to legislate against it for fear of being branded as transphobic. Tech needs to be a leader in offering opportunities to transgender WBB players so we can win another national championship before it becomes commonplace in the P5.

    Sadly there aren't many of the old Lady Techster blue-haired fans still with us. That generation is almost gone. The TAC is nearly empty for Lady Techster games now, and we need to build a new fan base. Ruston could become the Mecca for transgenders.

    I mean, once it happens there won't be any point to recruiting women anymore.

    (yes, I know the total % is low but this is a facile discussion anyway)

    The point of recruiting foreign players is to get your foot back in the door. We currently cannot compete with P5 and some G5 teams in the recruiting battles. The program he came from got their feet on the ground fist and, then, starting being able to compete for local players again. During our dominant years, we competed with 3 or 4 teams for the top talent in the country - didn't matter if it was in our backyard or anywhere in the country. We now can't even beat out teams in our conference. Get our feet on the ground again, then we can go after some great players in the country - including local greats. One step at a time. I think we have the assistant that can help us with that. We are building, not re-building anymore.

    At this point, we're not even building, we're conducting ground soil surveys and trying to get a loan.
