 Buffalo,  NY  (Sports Network) -  The University  of Buffalo has named Felisha
 Legette-Jack as its women's basketball coach.
 
 Legette-Jack  spent the past  six years as head coach at Indiana and was fired
 in  March after a  6-24 season. She guided the Hoosiers to winning records and
 postseason appearances in each of her first three seasons with the program.
 
 Prior  to joining Indiana, Legette-Jack was the head coach at Hofstra for four
 seasons.
 
 "I  am excited to be coming back to New York, where I started my head coaching
 career,"  said  Legette-Jack in a  statement Thursday. "This is an outstanding
 opportunity  to  build a program and  coach in a well-respected league such as
 the Mid-American Conference."
 
 The 45-year-old Legette-Jack has ties to the upstate New York area. A Syracuse
 native,  she is still the second-leading scorer in Syracuse University history
 and was an assistant at her alma mater from 1993-2000.
