CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Chattanooga has promoted Katie Burrows to take over for retired Women's Basketball Hall of Famer Jim Foster as women's basketball coach.
Athletic director Mark Wharton announced the decision Friday.
Burrows has spent eight seasons as an assistant at Chattanooga. She has worked on staffs headed by Wes Moore and Foster, who took over as the Mocs' coach in 2013 when Moore left for NC State. Chattanooga went 255-95 and earned five NCAA tournament berths during those eight seasons.
She played for Chattanooga from 2000 to 2004, when she was known as Katie Galloway. Chattanooga won four straight Southern Conference titles during her playing career and earned an NCAA tournament victory her senior year.
Foster retired May 8 with a 903-347 career record, including a 120-40 mark in five seasons at Chattanooga.
