Washington promotes Neighbors as new women's coach
Washington made the announcement of Neighbors' promotion on Friday night. Neighbors agreed to a five-year deal that will pay him $350,000 in the first season and increase by $20,000 each year thereafter.
Neighbors, 44, spent the last two seasons as an assistant to McGuff. He's never been a head coach at the college level, serving as an assistant at Xavier, Arkansas, Colorado and Tulsa before coming to Washington.
Neighbors will inherit a team that is coming off consecutive 20-win seasons for the first time since the mid-1990s. The Huskies should be very good in 2013-14 with two McDonald All-American's – Katie Collier and Kelsey Plum – joining all-Pac-12 selection Jazmine Davis.
