Kennesaw State has been looking for a new coach, as earlier this month they chose not to renew the contract of Nitra Perry. And the Owls have found their new leader of the program, as Kennesaw State will name coaching veteran Agnus Beranato their new head coach, per multiple sources.
Berenato most recently coached at Pittsburgh from 2003-2013. While leading the Panthers, she led them to the school's first NCAA Tournament back in 2007, two Sweet 16 appearances in 2008 and 2009 and the most wins in school history with 25 in the 2008-09 season. Berenato is also Pittsburgh's all-time leader in wins.
Beranato got her head coaching start at Rider University back in 1981, before she headed to Georgia Tech from 1988-2003. The last four years under her leadership, the Yellow Jackets went to the postseason. In 1992, they won the Women's National Invitational Tournament.
In December 2009, Berenato reached a milestone of her 400th career victory while at Pitt. At Pitt, she compiled a record of 161-149 and in her career 444-413.
The Kennesaw State administration plans to inform the team at 2:15 p.m. A press conference to introduce Berenato will happen in the next couple of weeks after she returns from Europe.
