About Legette Jack

Felisha Legette-Jack is a 1989 graduate of Syracuse University and a former Orange All-American. The 20-year-old college coach, a Syracuse native, took over the reins of Orange’s women’s basketball program in March 2022. One of Orange’s biggest stars, Legette-Jack returned to her hometown with over 30 years of coaching experience. . She spent the previous 10 years turning the University at Buffalo women’s program into one of the perennial powers of the Mid-American Conference (MAC), leading the Bulls to four NCAA tournaments, including the 2018 Sweet Sixteen.

Legette-Jack is the most winning coach of all time in Bulls history with a 202-115 record and four MAC tournament championships. During her career, she guided three different Division I programs for a total of 13 winning seasons, nine postseason berths, and six 20-win seasons, and amassed a 343–279 record. On November 14, 2021, Legette-Jack’s jersey was retired to the rafters of the JMA Dome, joining the 15 men’s basketball players and six football standouts who received that honor. It was the first time in Syracuse University history that a student-athlete was recognized in this way.
