Jody Conradt

Jody Conradt, the powerhouse women's basketball coach at the University of Texas-Austin (UT), has won more college women's basketball games than any other coach in history. At a last count just shy of 800 wins, she also holds the record for coaching 1,000 games—the first female coach to do so. She's a five-time Southwest Conference Coach of the Year, multiple National Coach of the Year, and Hall of Famer. As UT's women's athletic director from 1992 to 2001, she grew women's sports at a time when the school was facing the federal government's Title IX.
