Bobbi Morgan is set to begin her 12th season as Haverford College’s women’s basketball head coach in 2019-20. Morgan was named the 11th head women’s basketball coach at Haverford in June 2008 and begins her 33rd season overall as a head coach.

Morgan’s program has seen unprecedented success under her tenure and has made the Centennial Conference playoffs in each of the last eight seasons. That run of postseason success is highlighted by conference championships in 2019 and 2014, as well as an at-large NCAA Tournament berth in 2018.The 2018-19 season saw the Fords finish with the second-most wins in program history, capturing the Centennial Conference Championship and advancing to the NCAA Second Round.

After constant growth from year-to-year since starting at Haverford, Morgan’s team initially broke through in 2013-14 with the first Centennial Conference Tournament Championship in program history. The squad, which set new program records for wins (24) and Centennial Conference wins (15), also won its first-ever game in the NCAA Tournament with a 53-48 victory over Rhode Island College in the first round. Morgan was named the 2014 Centennial Conference Coach of the Year following that record-breaking season. It was the second time in her career she earned that honor after garnering that same recognition in 2012.
