2. WOMEN: High-profile coaches on the move

The holiday season saw several high-profile women's coaches change jobs.

Veteran coach John Cossaboon, who led SMU to conference titles in all four seasons with the Mustangs, left to become the assistant coach at Gonzaga.

"I am interested in waking up every day to an environment that both excites and challenges me to apply the experience that I have gained over the years and put it to the test," Cossaboon said of the surprise move to Spokane, Wash..

The well-traveled Cossaboon, who will work under Shannon Stiles, is no stranger to the WCC, guiding San Diego for six years prior to going to SMU. He was also the women's coach at UC Santa Barbara, coached in Japan's women's league for three years, served as the men's assistant at North Carolina, Duke and Santa Clara. He also served as director of coaching for the North Texas State Soccer Association for eight years.

USC has named Ali Khosroshahin, a three-time Big West Coach of the Year at Cal State Fullerton, as its new women's head coach.

Khosroshahin, 36, led Fullerton to three NCAA Tournament appearances and had winning seasons in each of his six years there. He takes over for Jim Millinder, whose contract was not renewed last month after 11 years as the Women of Troy's head coach.

Denise Schilte-Brown, who led Virginia Commonwealth to the NCAA Tournament in 2004 and 2005, has accepted the women's soccer head coach position at the University of South Florida, replacing Logan Fleck.

During her seven years at VCU, Schilte-Brown led the Rams to a 77-51-17 record, including back-to-back CAA championships in 2004 and 2005 and a third-place finish in 2006.

Nine days before Christmas, Dean Duerst quit as women's coach at Wisconsin after 20 seasons with the Badgers -- seven as an assistant coach under current women's national team coach Greg Ryan and 13 as head coach.
