CHICKASHA – After three seasons as Drover Head Women’s Basketball Coach, Jennifer Hayden has resigned as of Tuesday afternoon, to join her husband Sam Hayden who took the head baseball coach positon at Vernon College out of Texas.
As the head coach for the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, Hayden led her team to three straight Sooner Athletic Conference tournaments and coached five All-Conference athletes, including the third member of the Drover 1,000-point club, Paige Pulliam.
“We hate to lose good people and I think Coach Hayden ran a quality program, so it will be hard to replace her,” Athletic Director Brisco McPherson said. “I’m going to miss her. She took care of her business and everything was done in a first-class manner. I appreciate her contributions to the university.”
A search for a replacement will begin immediately to find the Drovers next head coach.
