Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Duquesne didn't look far to find its new
head women's basketball coach, promoting from within the program.
Dan Burt, the top assistant for the past six years, has been tabbed to replace
Suzie McConnell-Serio, who left to take the position at Pittsburgh in April.
"Dan Burt is the perfect choice to lead our women's basketball program. He has
demonstrated a strong commitment to the university and our student-athletes,"
Duquesne athletic director Greg Amodio said in a statement Saturday. "I expect
the program to grow under his leadership and compete for the Atlantic 10
Conference championship annually. The addition of Dan ensures that everything
is in place for the continued success of Duquesne womens basketball."
The Dukes tied the program record with 24 wins this past season.
