Mississipi State has named Vic Schaefer as its new women’s basketball head coach.

The hiring is still pending approval by the school’s board of trustees. She would be replacing Sharon Fanning-Otis, Mississippi State’s all-time winningest women’s basketball coach, who retired in late February.

Schaefer has completed her 9th season under Texas A&M’s head coach Gary Blair. Schaefer worked under Blair at Arkansas for seven seasons prior to coming to Texas A&M.

In nine years, the Aggies have went to seven NCAA Tournaments and won the program’s first-ever national championship last season. The Aggies have a No. 3 seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament.

“Vic has the work ethic, competitive intensity and intelligence that we look for in every Bulldog coach,” said athletic director Scott Stricklin. “He is regarded as arguably one of the top assistant coaches in the nation, and we are excited to have him leading the Mississippi State women’s basketball program.”
