Lynne Roberts

Since stepping foot on the University of Utah campus in 2015, head coach Lynne Roberts has had the same attitude toward the women's basketball program – there is no room for complacency.

She is entering her 10th season in 2024-25 after coming off an NCAA Second Round Appearance. This was Roberts’ third consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance in her time at Utah.

During the 2023-24 season, Roberts was dubbed Pac-12 Coach of the Year. She led the Utes' to their second NCAA Tournament since 2011 and third NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in school history. Utah had seven letter winners and five starters returning to Salt Lake City along with a talented recruiting class including South Dakota's Gatorade Player of the Year in Reese Ross.

Heading into the 2024-25 season, the Redding, Calif., native holds a 162-115 record at Utah and is 383-290 in her 22 years as a head coach. She earned her 300th career win against Weber State on Dec. 20, 2019. She enters her 23rd season as a head coach after spending nine seasons at Pacific and four years at Chico State. On April 19, 2022, Roberts signed a contract extension through June of 2027.

In her nine years in Salt Lake City, the Utes have appeared in the postseason in six seasons and have had six 18+ win seasons, including four 20-win seasons. The 20-win season in 2018-19 was the first since the 2012-13 season. The Utes won 27 games in 2022-23 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16, which was the first appearance for Utah since 2006.

The Redding, Calif., native graduated from Seattle Pacific University in 1997 with a bachelor's degree in history and added a master's degree from SPU in athletic administration in 2000.
