Pamela Findlay, who has been the women's basketball coach at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Ore., for the last two seasons, has been named head coach at Macalester.
She replaces Kelly Roysland, who left Macalester to take an assistant coaching job under Lindsay Whalen at the University of Minnesota.
Taking over a team that won only three games the season before she arrived, Findlay led Lewis & Clark to a 16-10 record in her first season and 14-12 last year. She has also been an assistant coach at Washington & Lee and was a graduate assistant at Bemidji State.
Findlay is a 2008 graduate of the Air Force Academy, when she was an All-Mountain West Conference selection as a senior.
Macalester finished 8-17 last season, which was Roysland's fourth at the school.
