    Does anybody know where Bill ranks on the all time win list for Women's D-1 head coaches?

    6 points in the 2nd half. Love it.

    I had forgotten BF was that close to 500 wins. Sweet.

    I also didn't realize ... I'm confused about WI's nickname. Leathernecks or Westerwinds.

    He's probably somewhere in the 30-40 range. He needs about 250 more wins to get in the top 5.

    As for milestones, I know Fennelly has a spot in his office for game ball # 500. There may not be time left for Fennelly to reach the coaching win record, but, I'm curious about the record for low scoring for a half.

    Leathernecks for all teams now.

    They dropped the "Westerwinds" recently.

    Among active coaches, all divisions.

    Among active coaches.

    Division I all-time he is 42nd according to page 6 of Erik4Cy's link.

    It's interesting that among those top 47 he has the fewest amount of coaching years on the list (tied with two others) with just 22 years of coaching. The majority of the coaches with more wins than him have been coaching for 30+ years. I'm curious where he'll be on the all time win list when he retires - love me some Fennelly!
