NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma's Sherri Coale has been elected as the vice president of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association, the university said Thursday.

Coale, who has coached 10 seasons at Oklahoma, will serve as vice president of the WBCA for one year. She then will become the organization's president when the term of the current president, DePaul coach Doug Bruno, ends.

Coale joined the WBCA's board of directors during the summer of 2005.

Coale has a 204-113 career record with the Sooners and has more wins than any other coach in the program's history. She guided Oklahoma to the 2002 national championship game and went 31-5 last season, losing in the third round of the NCAA Tournament to Stanford.
