Molly Goodenbour, a two-time national champion at Stanford who has 12 years of head coaching experience on the collegiate level, was named head women’s basketball coach at the University of San Francisco on Sept. 28, 2016.
In her two years on the Hilltop, Goodenbour has posted impressive numbers, including becoming the winningest coach in USF history through 50 games (27-23), as well as through two seasons at 34-28 (.548). Goodenbour continues to build on her already impressive resume at USF, becoming the first coach to post winning overall and conference records in her first two seasons on the job.
Goodenbour’s 2017-18 squad placed three WCC All-Conference and All-Academic honorees. Anna Seilund earned First-Team All-WCC and Second-Team All-WCC recipients Michaela Rakova and Kalyn Simon.
Goodenbour’s second WCC Tournament saw her lead the Dons to quarterfinal victory over Loyola Marymount for the second consecutive season, marking the sixth year in a row the Dons advanced beyond their opening game.
Janell Jones, who held head coaching positions at five institutions, was named USF’s associate head women’s basketball coach on Oct. 24, 2016.
Jones arrives on the Hilltop from Cal State Dominguez Hills, where she served as new USF women’s coach Molly Goodenbour’s top assistant for 2015-16 season when the Toros earned a share of the California Collegiate Athletic Association’s regular season championship. She was named the Toros head coach on July 29 after Goodenbour accepted the head coaching position at Cal State-East Bay.
She also held head coaching positions at Cal State-Los Angeles, Mercer, UC San Diego and Oklahoma City. Her career head coaching record stands at 333-133 (.715).
Steding returns to the USF women’s basketball coaching staff as associate head coach.
Steding rejoins the Dons following four seasons at Boston University. In her four seasons at the helm, the Terriers enjoyed their highest win total in the league since joining in 2013 with a 11-7 record in 2016-17. In her tenure, the Terriers had two players named to the All-Patriot League team, as well as a defensive team and All-Rookie Team.
A 16-year coaching veteran, Steding went to BU after spending two seasons at California where she helped lead the Golden Bears to their first Pac-12 title and a pair of trips to the NCAA tournament. Under her guidance, the 2012-13 team posted a 32-4 overall record and earned the first Final Four berth in program history. Her main responsibilities at Cal included recruiting, working with the post players and overseeing the team’s offense.

He comes to USF after five years as a student assistant for the men’s basketball program at Sonoma State University, where he helped the coaching staff with all aspects of the program, including day-to-day operations, coaching and academic supervising of the Student Athletes.
