Duquesne names Burt head coach

Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Duquesne didn't look far to find its new head women's basketball coach, promoting from within the program.

Dan Burt, the top assistant for the past six years, has been tabbed to replace Suzie McConnell-Serio, who left to take the position at Pittsburgh in April.

"Dan Burt is the perfect choice to lead our women's basketball program. He has demonstrated a strong commitment to the university and our student-athletes," Duquesne athletic director Greg Amodio said in a statement Saturday. "I expect the program to grow under his leadership and compete for the Atlantic 10 Conference championship annually. The addition of Dan ensures that everything is in place for the continued success of Duquesne women's basketball."

The Dukes tied the program record with 24 wins this past season.
