To understand Courtney Banghart – Ivy League graduate, Dartmouth College Hall of Famer, Naismith Coach of the Year – and how she got to North Carolina, you’ll have to understand her past. Banghart was a basketball player and neuroscience major at Dartmouth, but said that coaching "wasn't a vocation in my eyes." It took three years of coaching high school basketball – while also teaching and serving as athletic director – for her to change her tune. Banghart then returned to Dartmouth, where she served as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator while working toward her master's in writing and leadership development. In 2007, Banghart was named the head coach of Princeton women's basketball, and quickly turned the program around. In her third season, the Tigers made their first ever NCAA Tournament appearance. In 2015, Banghart's team went undefeated in the regular season, and Banghart was named one of the Women's 50 Greatest Leaders by Fortune magazine. Now, Courtney Banghart is in Chapel Hill.
