BOSTON (AP) — Boston University has named an Olympic gold medalist and NCAA champion as its women's basketball coach.

The school on Friday announced that Katy Steding will take over for Kelly Greenberg.

Steding has 14 years' experience as a coach, including the last two as an assistant at California, where she helped lead the Golden Bears to the 2013 Final Four.

Director of athletics Mike Lynch said the school is "fortunate to have someone of her class and caliber representing Boston University."

Steding, an Oregon native, helped Stanford win the 1990 NCAA championship and the U.S. to the 1996 Atlanta Olympics gold medal.

Greenberg resigned in April about a month after several former players complained that she was so verbally and emotionally abusive she drove them off the team.
