According to a new study, women represent
only 45.6 percent of the coaches of women's
teams in the National Collegiate Athletic
Association (NCAA) this year, the lowest
percent of female coaches in 23 years.
The study also reported that of the 534
head-coaching positions created for new
women's teams in the last two years, 80
percent were filled by men. Moreover,
women still represent only 34 percent of
athletics administrators in the NCAA.
The study was conducted by R. Vivian
Acosta and Linda Jean Carpenter, two
recently-retired professors of physical
education who have studied trends in
women's sports since 1977.
