Weaver said going into their search process, they had a certain profile of coach in mind.

The Hurricanes were 26-7 this past season, winning the Peach Belt Championship and losing in the NCAA D-II Sweet 16. Haden coached the Lady Hounds for the past five seasons, with a record of 118-36, including a 29-4 record this past season, and four straight invitations to the national tournament.
