Sherri Coale, How to Teach Better Basketball Guest: Sherri Coale, Oklahoma Women's Basketball Head Coach In this week’s basketball coaching conversation, Oklahoma women's basketball head coach Sherri Coale joins the podcast to discuss what she teaches, and how she teaches the game of basketball. The conversation covers learning and teaching ideas about how to teach better basketball. In 23 years as the head coach of Oklahoma, the numbers speak for themselves. Coale has been to three final fours, won six Big 12 Regular Season Championships, four Big 12 Tournament Championships, had 19 straight NCAA Tournament appearances, and nine Sweet 16 appearances. While developing 13 All-Americans and 64 All-Big 12 Team selections, Coale has also emphasized academics as the Sooners have had 127 Academic All-Big 12 honors. That progress and consistent success has elevated Coale to elite status in college basketball as well a spot in the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2016.
