The Western Technical College women’s basketball team is coming off a season to remember, but it will move forward with a new head coach.
Chad Dull, who led the Cavaliers to a 21-7 season and fourth-place national finish, announced Monday on the team’s Facebook page that he has accepted a new job as vice president at another school. Dull didn’t share that school.
Western had not won more than 10 games since the 2013-14 season and had never made it to the NJCAA tournament. They were 14-33 the two previous seasons and jump-started their national tournament run with a 17-game winning streak after a 4-5 start.
Chad Dull was assisted by his father, Greg Dull, a long-time Tomah High School teacher and coach. The Cavaliers tapped the Tomah pipeline by signing Emma Liek, a four-year letterwinner at Tomah, for the 2019-20 season.
