Chicago State has hired Tiffany Sardin as its new women’s basketball coach.

“I am so excited to be able to come home and lead the Chicago State women’s basketball program,” Sardin said in a statement. “I grew up in Chicago. I was able to earn a college scholarship here, and now am blessed with this opportunity. Coming home with a goal to build a program and help develop young women is truly special to me.”

Chicago State has had nine straight losing seasons, failing to win more than six games a year in that span. Misty Opat resigned as coach last month after two seasons.

Sardin comes to Chicago State from Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, where she was associate head coach and recruiting coordinator. Sardin was also an assistant coach at Illinois-Chicago, Clemson and Boston University. She was an Illinois All-State high school player for Marshall and is a member of the Chicago Public Schools Hall of Fame.
