“Quite frankly, I don’t think about it,” Foster said. As far as he’s concerned, coaching is in the disposition, in the game knowledge and personality that anyone of any sex can possess.

“Don’t underestimate the educational component of our job,” Foster said. “Ninety percent of our work is done in practice.”

If that percentage works for the two-time Big Ten champion Buckeyes, Foster may have a point.
