There’s a rising Starr on the Pacific women’s basketball staff.
The Tigers announced the promotion of Amy Starr to associate head coach on Wednesday, moving her from her previous position of assistant coach. The upcoming basketball season will be Starr’s fourth with Pacific.
As a member of the Tigers’ staff, Starr has helped the Tigers to a West Coast Conference semifinals run, as well as the team’s best record in recent history in 2017-2018.
She also played an important role in helping Anaya Brooklyn McDavid earn All-WCC Freshman Team honors and ALL-WCC Honorable Mention recognition as a freshman.
"Amy's commitment to the program and Pacific is genuine and significant," head coach Bradley Davis said. "She's been truly invested in Pacific women's basketball. It is great for our program and university to reward that investment because she is so deserving."
Before her time at Pacific, Starr was an associate head coach at Montana State, where she was on staff for 10 seasons.
She spent her playing career at Washington State, where she holds the fifth-highest field goal percentage (.490), the single-game record for field-goal percentage - a 10-for-10 night against Stanford, as well as the single-game rebounding record with 22 boards in a game against Arizona State.
"I am so excited about what we are building here," Starr said. "The character of these players and coaching staff is special, and I am grateful to Coach Davis for the opportunity to be a part of it. I absolutely love coming to work every day because it never feels like work.
