URI Hires Daynia La-Force as Women’s Basketball Coach

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

 

URI has hired Daynia La-Force to be its next women’s basketball coach, the school announced today. La-Force will be formally introduced by the University later this month (date TBD).

"We are thrilled to have Daynia La-Force as the new head coach of the URI women's basketball program," URI Athletic Director Thorr Bjorn said in a press release. "After going through an extensive nationwide search, with many exceptional candidates, we felt that Daynia brings all the criteria we were looking for when we started the process."

La-Force spent the last 8 seasons as the head coach at Northeastern University. She is the first minority woman head coach URI has ever hired for any sport.

"There is an undeniable commitment from the players, support staff, administration, and alumni to build something special here,” La-Force said in a statement. “The passion and pride of everyone associated with URI Athletics inspired me and helped me in making my decision to become a Ram.“

La-Force replaces Cathy Inglese, who compiled a 30-115 record in 5 years at the helm for the Rams.
