LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Siena has reached into its past for a women’s basketball coach, hiring Jim Jabir to take over the program for a second time. The 58-year-old Jabir previously led the Siena women’s program to a 50-29 record over three seasons in the late 1980s. He spent the past four seasons at Florida Atlantic and replaces Ali Jaques, who coached the Saints for nine seasons but was not brought back. Jabir has an overall record of 514-446 over 33 seasons as a college head coach, all but one at the Division I level. He's also coached at Dayton, Providence, and Marquette.
