Coach Jose Fernandez

When the USF women’s basketball team beat Memphis in January, it marked the three hundredth career win for head coach Jose Fernandez. Perhaps the most amazing fact is that every one of those victories came at USF. With the postseason just around the corner, this year’s team – which comes from around the world – is one of Fernandez’s most promising groups. We catch up with the winningest coach in USF basketball history on University Beat on WUSF TV.
