After accumulating five NCAA Tournament appearances as a head coach at the NCAA Division II level, Amy Eagan takes her shot at the Division 1 level. The Shelby County native was named the new Women’s Basketball Coach at Lindenwood University last week. Eagan says leaving Drury for the St. Charles campus isn’t as much about moving up to Division 1….
Lindenwood only won two games in the program’s first season at the Division 1 level, with one win in the Ohio Valley Conference. Eagan understands the challenge…..
Eagan went 87-9 (.888) during her three years at Drury and guided the Lady Panthers to a Great Lakes Valley Conference championship in all three of her seasons. She was named the NCAA-II Coach of the Year by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association in 2021. Eagan doesn’t expect much difference in recruiting initially….
In six seasons as head coach at Truman State, Eagan became the program’s all-time leader in career coaching wins at 111-62. She was also an All-American for the Bulldogs. As a high school player, she was an All-State selection while playing at South Shelby High School. Eagan is thankful for her support…..
Eagan will take a career record of 275-151 to Lindenwood. You can hear the full interview by going to the Magic City Sports Talk page at centralmoinfo.com.
