Seattle U assistant named EWU women's basketball coach

Joddie Gleason, the associate head coach at Seattle University for the past five seasons, was named the eighth women’s basketball coach in Eastern Washington history on Friday, athletic director Lynn Hickey announced.

Gleason also has 12 years of head coaching experience at Humboldt State.

At Seattle University, Gleason worked as the team's offensive coordinator where she was responsible for implementing practice plans and scouting reports. Gleason was also the point person for scheduling and summer camps while overseeing guard development.

In 2017-18, Gleason helped coach the Redhawks to the program's first-ever WAC Championship and NCAA Tournament appearance. The year prior, Seattle U advanced to the WAC title game and qualified for the WNIT for the first time since 2013.

Prior to her five seasons in Seattle, Gleason spent 12 years as the head coach at Humboldt State University. She compiled an overall record of 201-137 and was the program's all-time winningest coach upon her departure.

Under her leadership, the Lumberjacks qualified for the NCAA DII Tournament four times and won two California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) championships.

Gleason also served as the head coach at Butte Community College in Oroville, Calif., from 1999-2004 where she compiled a 107-45 overall record in five seasons.
