USF's Osterman Another MAAC Tourney Connection

Add one more former MAAC connection who is still involved in national post-season tournament play.

That would be Jeff Osterman, a 1992 graduate of Siena with a degree in marketing/management. Osterman, though, was never an athlete at the school, but actually served at an assistant coach at Russell Sage's program during his senior season at Siena.

Osterman is now the associate head coach at the University of South Florida, and has been with that program for seven seasons.

South Florida is participating in the WNIT, and won its first-round game over Florida Atlantic. It advances to the event's second round where it will meet Florida International on Saturday.

Considering Osterman's connection to Siena, and the success of his current program ... your Hoopscribe will take a very uneducated guess that Osterman will be on the short list of Siena administrators in their search to replace Gina Castelli as coach of the Saints' women's program.
