Crenshaw to succeed Landers as Georgia women's coach

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Joni Crenshaw, Andy Landers' top assistant the last three years, has been named to succeed him as the Georgia women's basketball coach.
    
Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said Crenshaw was selected as only the second full-time coach in school history.
    
McGarity said Sunday that Crenshaw brings "character, experience and a tireless energy" to the job.
    
Landers retired on March 16 after 36 seasons. He was 862-299 at Georgia, including five Final Four appearances. He was inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in 2007.
    
Crenshaw joined Landers' staff in 2011 after working at LSU, Alabama, Louisiana Tech and Troy. She was a two-year starter at Alabama.
    
Landers said the program "is in great hands" with Crenshaw.
