Todd Buchanan Participates in WBCA Leadership Event

Todd Buchanan enters his fourth season as head coach at Houston

June 18, 2013

HOUSTON - University of Houston women's basketball head coach Todd Buchanan recently participated in the opening session of the 2013 edition of "The Center for Coaching Excellence" hosted by Columbia University in New York City.

Created in 2011 through a partnership between Columbia and the Women's Basketball Coaches Association, 32 WBCA-member coaches completed the invitation-only, two-and-a-half day elite leadership program.

"When you have incredible leaders like Dr. Dianne Murphy (Columbia Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Physical Education) and (clinical psychologist) Dr. Cathie Siders, it makes it a great program, not only because of their leadership abilities but also because they care," Buchanan said. "They're trying to make us better by being able to understand ourselves and what kind of leaders we are."

Capitalizing on the resources of Columbia University, one of the world's leading research universities, and utilizing collaborative and interactive learning sessions along with lectures and panel discussions featuring experts in college athletics, the CCE gives college women's basketball coaches valuable networking opportunities with their peers and top industry leaders.

"The small groups we worked in were powerful, not only for what we were learning but the camaraderie with some extremely talented coaches," Buchanan said. "Just like our student-athletes, we as coaches have to get better and continue to evolve."

"For the third consecutive year, I am thrilled to work with the exceptional men and women that steward the game of college women's basketball," said Siders. "I find our nation's college women's basketball head coaches to be wonderful teachers and mentors, who are committed to the young women on their teams. These coaches appreciate refining their leadership skills to add to their coaching repertoire. "
