Shea Ralph is leaving the Pitt women’s basketball program to return to her alma mater, joining Geno Auriemma’s staff at the University of Connecticut.

Ralph, 30, spent the past five seasons as an assistant to Pitt coach Agnus Berenato, with her scouting and coaching the guards playing a pivotal role in the Panthers’ run to the NCAA Sweet 16.

Ralph starred at Connecticut from 1996-2001, earning Big East Rookie of the Year honors in ’97 and Player of the Year honors in 2000, when she led the Huskies to the NCAA championship and was named Most Valuable Player of the Final Four.

She replaces Tonya Cardoza, who became head coach at Temple after Dawn Staley left for the University of South Carolina.
