Florida State women’s basketball head coach Sue Semrau will return to the sidelines in Tallahassee for the 2021-2022 season. Semrau took a year long leave of absence to care for her mother.
Thank You Florida State for granting me the time with my amazing parents. Thank you @CoachBrookeFSU for an outstanding job as HC. Can’t wait to reunite with my team April 1st! pic.twitter.com/pYWQ1aFBAk— Sue Semrau (@CoachSueFSU) March 30, 2021
In her absence Brooke Wyckoff stepped in as the interim head coach and led the Seminoles to a 10-9 record and a return to the NCAA Tournament in a very challenging season that was disrupted by Covid. Wyckoff will return to her previous position as Associate Head Coach.
The Seminoles will welcome a recruiting class that is ranked 13th by ESPN and will include newly minted Florida Ms. Basketball O’Mariah Gordon. The rest of the roster is eligible to return but with all of the transfers occurring in college basketball recently it will be interesting to see whether Florida State will be able to keep the current roster intact.
However, that is a consideration for another day. Today Seminole Nation can celebrate that Coach Semrau’s mother has improved enough that she can return to Florida State.
