Yesterday, UC Santa Barbara Athletic Director Gary Cunningham announced the hiring of the new UCSB women’s water polo head coach, Danielle Altman. Altman, the former head coach at Cal State, San Bernardino, fills the vacancy left by former Head Coach Pam Tanase when she resigned in August. In four seasons, Altman was 64-58 at CSUSB but led her squad to 26-8 mark in 2001 and a 41-18 record over the last two seasons. Tanase resigned as the head coach for the Gauchos after just two seasons at the helm, notching a sub-par 34-35 record over that span. Santa Barbara finished 10th in last year’s season-ending Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament.
