Debbie Ryan To Serve as Panelist At Villa 7 Coaches Consortium in May
CHARLOTTESVILLE – Virginia Hall of Fame head coach Debbie Ryan will be a featured speaker at the Villa 7 Coaches Consortium on May 13 and 14, 2010. Held at the Nike Campus in Beaverton, Ore., Villa 7 is a partnership between the Center for Sport Leadership at Virginia Commonwealth University and Nike to bring together university athletic directors and the country’s elite assistant basketball coaches in an effort to prepare the next generation of college basketball leaders.
“I feel honored to be included as a panelist at the Villa 7 Coaches Consortium,” Ryan said. “Assistant coaches get hands-on experience in navigating the landscape toward becoming head coaches while networking with some of the top administrators in athletics today.”
Ryan is part of the Head Coaches Panel, which includes fellow women’s basketball head coach Brian Giorgis (Marist) and men’s basketball head coach Jim Boeheim (Syracuse).
Virginia associate head coach Tim Taylor and assistant coach Angel Elderkin are scheduled to attend the consortium.
