Marybeth Nugent was promoted to head women's basketball coach of the Buffalo State women's program prior to the 2018-19 season after spending three seasons as the lead assistant under Kevin Clifford who departed for the same position at Division II Roberts Wesleyan.

Nugent guided the Bengals back to the playoffs in 2019-20 and mentored the program's first All-American since 2012 in Liv LeBaron who earned honorable mention honors and became the program's second leading scorer all-time despite playing just three seasons.

Nugent is a 2011 graduate of Daemen College, where she was also an integral part of the women's basketball program. She started all 124 games of her career and holds the record for single game assists and single game three-point percentage. She was also a member of the 2010-11 NAIA National TNT "Sweet 16" team and was inducted into the Daemen Athletic Hall of Fame.

Prior to Buffalo State, Nugent was the junior varsity women's basketball coach at Williamsville South and has also coached AAU. 

The Springville, N.Y. native earned a bachelor's degree from Daemen in health career studies.

Coach Nugent! Thank you so much for joining the pod. Coach's passion and intentionality of bringing the Bengals back to dominance was a joy to her. A product of the 716, she is doing it right!
