A source very familiar with the Cal State Fullerton women's basketball coaching search tells Swish Appeal that the school will likely be holding a press conference on Wednesday at 1:00 pm to introduce their new women’s basketball coach.

Daron Park is believed to be the frontrunner for the job. When asked the chances that Park would be named the new coach, the source said, "Pretty good."

Park bring nine years of experience on the Division I level: Associate Head Coach at USC this past year, the year before at California, Associate Head Coach at Louisiana Tech (2009-11), Interim Head Coach at Maryland when they made it to the Elite Eight (2007-08) and assistant coach at Utah (2004-07).

He will be replacing Marcia Foster who ended her tenure with the Titans with a record of 49-79 (.368). She was in her fourth year with the basketball program and 10 years overall with the university.
