Want to know more about Coach Gottlieb? Here are what some people around the women's basketball world are saying about the California Golden Bear head coach.
"Lindsay Gottlieb has proven she knows what it takes to "cut down the nets" during three championship seasons at UCSB. She is a "forward thinking" teacher and leader with vision. Coach Gottlieb's teams play with high basketball IQ, a determined work ethic and a confident demeanor that will be necessary to battle for the Pac 10 title. CAL will continue winning and Lindsay provides the total package for the student athlete." - Debbie Antonelli, Women's Basketball Analyst
"Lindsay is a dynamic young coach with unlimited potential. She is a great recruiter with a tremendous work ethic. On top of her great attributes as a coach, she's been really fun to work with." - Bob Williams, Head Men's Basketball Coach, UCSB Gauchos
"Lindsay is the next generation of up and coming, young head coaches. She has a great knowledge of the game and an incredible passion for her players." - Joanne Boyle
"Coach G had my support from the beginning. I have never met anyone who contains more knowledge than she does and she's only 33! Her love and compassion for the game and players is so rare to find at this level. I know she is going to excel and take this program to a new level and fans should be excited." - Former Cal Guard Rachelle Federico
"I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce and welcome back to the Cal Athletics family, Lindsay Gottlieb. You might ask why. Well, it's about her vision. Her vision for an enriching student-athlete experience that includes a high level of success both on and off the court. She has a track record for postseason accomplishments both as an assistant and as a head coach. It's about her passion. Her passion for student-athletes in this program and the difference and that she and we can and will make in their lives. And it's about her passion for this community and having Cal women's basketball take its proper place in the hearts and minds of the campus and the community. The intelligence she possesses, the work ethic she brings to the endeavor every day. What I've seen in Lindsay as a head coach is a compassionate and passionate leader who will be organized and efficient, consistent with our high performance principles, who will surround herself with highly skilled people to create the necessary conditions for success for the young women in our program. Of great importance to the Cal community, Lindsay is a leader of high integrity, high energy and high intellect." - California Director of Athletics, Sandy Barbour
