Two women's basketball assistants leaving

USF women's basketball coach Jose Fernandez has some hiring to do, as assistant coaches Jaida Williams and Shalon Pillow resigned Friday to accept jobs at other schools.

Williams, an assistant for the last two seasons, is expected to take a job at Santa Barbara, while Pillow, who spent two years as an assistant after one season as director of basketball operations, will be an assistant at Hofstra. Fernandez's DOBO this past season, Andy Christensen, resigned earlier this month to accept a high school job in Indiana. Fernandez, Williams and Pillow could not be reached for comment Friday.

That leaves top assistant Jeff Osterman as the only remaining member of Fernandez's coaching staff. Fernandez has led the Bulls to postseason appearances in each of the last five seasons, most recently a return trip to the Women's NIT, where USF lost to Florida Gulf Coast in the opening round.
