Heather Jacobs

Coach Jacobs was named the ninth head coach in Adelphi Women's Basketball history in May, 2010. Jacobs comes to Adelphi after a three year stint as the Head Coach of Daniel Webster College, a Division III institution in Nashua, New Hampshire. In 2009-2010 she was named the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Coach of the Year after with a school record best finish of 20-6 and a regular season conference title.

In her first season with the Panthers in 2010-11, Jacobs doubled the team's wins from a season ago and had five times as many conference wins as they did last season. Jacobs had an NE-10 All-Rookie team selection as well as a Second-Team All-Metropolitan honoree. Off the court, the first-year Head Coach had one player on the conference's All-Academic squad and a Capital One Academic All-District Third-Team member.

In 2008-09, Jacobs led Daniel Webster College to a then best-ever finish with a 17-11 overall record, which marked the first winning season for the program in 10 years. In addition, the program qualified for the post-season for the first time in as many years, winning its first ever playoff game, and advancing to the NECC's inaugural championship game.

Hired as the youngest head coach in the NCAA in 2007, Jacobs guided the Eagles to 10-15 record her first season. In addition to her coaching duties, she also served as the athletic program's senior woman administrator. Prior to her appointment at Daniel Webster, she spent one year as an assistant coach at Norwich University. The Lady Cadets posted a 24-4 overall record and advanced to the conference tournament championship game before earning an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament.

A native of Stoughton, Mass, Jacobs was a 2006 graduate of Franklin Pierce University. She graduated magna cum laude in Sports and Recreation Management with a minor in Marketing. She was a two-time Northeast-10 Conference All-Academic selection. Jacobs closed out her collegiate career earning Second Team All-Conference accolades while leading the team in scoring and the NE-10 in free throw shooting. A two-time captain and team MVP as a junior and senior, Jacobs retired 20th all-time in scoring and 19th in rebounding.

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

Overnight success

My daughter was not going to stay overnight but then changed her mind. The staff's willingness to let her stay was fantastic and they made it as easy as possible. She loved it and wants to come back next year.
