St. Francis (NY)'s John Thurston
Brooklyn Heights, NY -- St. Francis College introduced John Thurston as the new head women's basketball coach on Monday afternoon, after serving the past two seasons as associate head coach. Thurston replaces Brenda Milano who resigned after completing her ninth season leading the Terriers.
“I would like to thank President Dugan, the members of the Board of Trustees and most especially AD Irma Garcia for the opportunity they have given me to lead this program,” Thurston said. “I want to personally thank Brenda Milano for her support, without which this opportunity would not have occurred. Brenda is an outstanding young coach, the nicest person I have ever worked with and someone the coaching profession needs."
Terrier Sports Network's Jaden Daly caught up with the new head coach, athletic director Irma Garcia and some of the players to gauge their thoughts on coach Thurston.
