Guest: Jennie Baranczyk, Oklahoma Head Coach

Oklahoma head coach Jennie Baranczyk joins the Basketball Podcast to share insights on love, pace, assists, and motion.

The 11th-year head coach spent nine seasons at Drake before starting her Oklahoma tenure in 2021-22.

In Baranczyk's first year at Oklahoma, she led one of the greatest turnarounds in the country, guiding the Sooners to a 25-9 record and into the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The 13-win improvement from the season before Baranczyk's arrival was the second-largest turnaround in program history. She was named a Naismith National Coach of the Year semifinalist for her efforts.

Through two seasons, Baranczyk’s teams have earned two NCAA Tournament appearances, the most recent of which ended in the second round.

Prior to Oklahoma, Jennie won back-to-back MVC Coach of the Year awards after her team's historic 2016-17 and 2017-18 campaigns, leading Drake to an 18-0 regular season conference record both years and winning both MVC Tournaments. She left Drake with a 192-96 record that includes six consecutive 20-win seasons and three appearances in the NCAA Tournament.
