SEATTLE (AP) — Washington has hired Tina Langley as its new women's basketball coach, giving one of the top coaches in Conference USA over the past six seasons her first shot at leading a Power Five program. 

Langley replaces Jody Wynn, who was fired last month after four disappointing seasons in charge of the Huskies. 

Langley went 126-61 in six seasons as head coach at Rice. 

The Owls went 44-4 in conference play over the past three seasons and Langley was named the Conference USA coach of the year in 2019.
