The winningest coach in Wyoming women’s basketball history, Legerski coached the Cowgirls to
314 wins, ten seasons of at least 20 wins, and a school-record 27 wins and a WNIT national
championship in 2007. Coaching at his alma mater, he earned three Mountain West Coach of
the Year awards and coached five All-Americans during his sixteen seasons as head coach. The
all-time Cowgirl attendance record was set during his tenure in 2007 with a sellout of the
Arena-Auditorium for the WNIT championship game. He coached the Cowgirls to their first
NCAA Tournament appearance and their first national rankings in 2008. Legerski coached two
Mountain West Players of the Year, three MW Defensive Players of the Year, three MW
Newcomers of the Year, two MW Sixth Players of the Year, and 21 All-Mountain West
performers. Twelve of the twenty-six Cowgirl basketball players who scored one-thousand
points in school history played for Coach Legerski. Legerski retired in 2019 after a season in
which his Cowgirls won 25 games and advanced to the quarterfinals of the WNIT.
