About Legette Jack
Felisha Legette-Jack is a 1989 graduate of Syracuse University and a former Orange All-American. A Syracuse native and head coach for 20 years, she took the reins of Orange’s women’s basketball program in March 2022. One of Orange’s all-time greats, Legette-Jack has returned to her hometown native with over 30 years of coaching experience. She spent the previous 10 years building the University at Buffalo women’s program into one of the perennial powerhouses of the Mid-American Conference (MAC), leading the Bulls to four NCAA tournaments, including the 2018 Sweet Sixteen.
Legette-Jack is the all-time winningest coach in Bulls history with a 202-115 record and four MAC Tournament championships. During her career, she guided three different Division I programs to a total of 13 winning seasons, nine playoff berths and six 20-win seasons, and amassed a 343-279 record. On November 14, 2021, Legette-Jack’s jersey was retired to the JMA Dome rafters, joining those of 15 male basketball players and six soccer players who received the honor. It was the first time in Syracuse University history that a female student-athlete was recognized in this way.
