Karl Smesko, who just wrapped up his ninth year on the bench at FGCU, has enjoyed a tremendous run as the head women’s basketball coach for the Eagles. He was selected as the university’s first women’s basketball coach in 2001. His nine-season record at FGCU is an astounding 232-46 and his four-season record in Atlantic Sun Conference matchups is 64-12.

The offensive guru, who was ranked fourth on a list honoring the top Mid-Major head coaches in NCAA Division I by the National Women’s Basketball Insider website in August 2010, led the Blue and Green to a 28-4 overall record (17-3 A-Sun), en route to being named A-Sun Coach of the Year and securing the program’s eighth 21-plus win season in the nine-year program history, along with a second Atlantic Sun Conference regular season crown and a fourth consecutive automatic bid to the WNIT.

During the 2010-11 campaign, the Eagles led the nation in three point field goals made per game and extended their home winning streak to 42 games, which at the time was the third longest in the nation behind UConn and Stanford, before dropping a highly competitive game to SEC foe Florida, 74-69, in front of a Alico Arena record crowd of 4,543 in the second round of the WNIT.
