In his latest installment of “Take 5,” President Satish K. Tripathi interviews Felisha Legette-Jack, coach of the UB women’s basketball team since 2012 and the all-time winningest coach in program history.
Legette-Jack led UB to seven straight winning seasons for the first time since the Bulls joined the Mid-American Conference in 1998. Under her leadership, the Bulls advanced to the Sweet Sixteen in 2018, the first time in school history.
During her conversation with Tripathi, Legette-Jack discusses her career; her response to the COVID-19 pandemic; the athletics department’s success in fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion; and the conversation she had with her team in the wake of the deaths of George Floyd and other black men and women at the hands of police.

Thank you for chatting with Coach Jack. We are so lucky to have her here at UB. She's such a great coach, such a wonderful ambassador for UB and someone we can all learn from. She's the best.
