Leah Foster was announced as assistant coach on June 27, 2011, after spending the last three seasons as an assistant coach at Dartmouth University.

"Leah is a very classy young lady who will be a fantastic mentor for our student-athletes," said head coach Todd Buchanan. "From a basketball standpoint, she's very well rounded and knows the game. She's certainly a rising star in this profession and in the recruiting game, and I think she'll be instrumental in helping us obtain the upper echelon of talent."

"I am thrilled to join the University of Houston women's basketball program and become a part of the Cougar family," said Foster. "Coach Buchanan and his staff have developed such a high level of excellence in the short amount of time they have been on campus. This is such an amazing time in the history of the program, and it is an honor to be a part of it."

During her time at Dartmouth, Foster was responsible for scouting, recruiting, player development, scheduling and team operations.

Foster made an immediate impact upon arriving at Dartmouth for the 2008-09 season, as the Big Green posted an 18-11 record and a near-perfect 13-1 mark in Ivy League play en route to the conference title and a NCAA Tournament appearance.

In her three seasons at Dartmouth, Foster helped mentor four student-athletes to six All-Ivy selections, including the 2009 Ivy League Player of the Year.

Prior to her time in Hanover, N.H., Foster spent two seasons at Texas State, where she helped lead the Bobcats to a 39-26 overall record and the 2008 Southland Conference regular-season crown.

While at Texas State, Foster assisted with the day-to-day operations of the program including film exchange, recruiting, camp and player development.

Foster was a four-year letterwinner at St. Edward's University (Austin, Texas), and served as captain during her senior season as the Hilltoppers claimed the Heartland Conference Championship. Foster earned second team All-Heartland Conference accolades as a junior and ranks in the top 10 in career 3-point percentage and single-season free-throw percentage.

Foster also excelled off the court, as she was an Arthur Ashe Sports Scholar and Heartland Conference Commissioner's Award recipient, as well as a member of the National Honor Society and Dean's List.

Foster graduated cum laude from St. Edward's with a degree in English in 2006 and earned her master's degree in physical education and sports management from Texas State in 2008.
