Carrie Graf gets the Opals coaching job

By johnboy 11 December 2008 41

Basketball Australia informs us that the Canberra Capitals’ coach Carrie Graff has, fourth time lucky, been given the nod to coach the national women’s basketball side through to the 2010 world cup.

    ‘“It’s no secret that Carrie has wanted the Opals head coaching job for some time and it gives us great pleasure to announce that her time has come,” said Basketball Australia Chief Executive Scott Derwin.

    “The Opals have achieved great success over the past decade and we expect that tradition to continue under Carrie’s leadership.”’

It’s great for Carrie, but is there an upside for the Caps in this?

What’s Your opinion?

Yes, I saw that interview as well and I’m hoping she does get the $$ for another 4 years. I think the appointment to Opals coach is a big thumbs up to her skills as one of the most consistent coaches of the WNBL. Good on her!

… As for the photograph, I don’t think it is a good one, but it is the photo and not Carrie Graf as I always think she looks really nice. I would go further to say that I’ve seen quite a few bad photographs of the Caps over the past couple of years too which annoys me. I know that they are sports stars and not fashion models, but really they are nice, fit, athletic looking girls and the photos I’ve seen (see Canberra Times on Friday??) do not do them justice. Just my 2c anyway.
