Goodenbour’s hiring was announced Wednesday by the school with practices set to begin in the coming week. She returns for a third stint at the West Coast Conference school after serving as a Dons assistant coach in 1994-95 and 2005-06.
A two-time NCAA champion at Stanford under Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer, Goodenbour had just taken over the Cal State-East Bay program this past June. She has 12 years of college head coaching experience, having worked at Santa Rosa Junior College, Cal State-Chico, UC Irvine and Cal-State Dominguez Hills. She has a 222-142 record.
Azzi resigned Sept. 15 after six seasons at USF and the program’s first NCAA Tournament berth since 1997. The Dons (21-12) won the WCC.
