  • THIRTIES
  • 2007
    Former Florida Gators player Amanda Butler replaced Peck for the 2007 - 08 season.
    More Details Hide Details Peck was not out of basketball for long, however: ESPN hired her as a basketball analyst within months.
  • 2002
    On April 3, 2002, Peck returned to coaching college basketball, this time leading the Florida Gators women's basketball team of the University of Florida.
    More Details Hide Details During her five seasons at Florida (2002 - 03 through 2006-07), the Gators posted a 72 - 75 record with two NCAA tournament berths. The 2003 - 04 team, which posted a 19 - 11 record after going 9 - 19 the season before, was eliminated by Baylor in the second round of the 2004 NCAA Tournament, after defeating New Mexico in the first round before 16,029 fans at Albuquerque. The 2005 - 06 team posted a 21 - 7 record and received a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament, but this time New Mexico got revenge on Florida, defeating them by 24 points in the first round. The 2006 - 07 season was a disaster—the Gators suffered through a 14-game losing streak and finished 9 - 22. Following the losing streak, the university fired Peck in February but allowed her to finish the season as coach.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1999
    During Peck’s three seasons as WNBA coach, the Miracle, which featured Shannon Johnson, Taj McWilliams-Franklin, Nykesha Sales and fellow Vanderbilt graduate Sheri Sam, posted a 44 - 52 record, narrowly missing out on the playoffs in 1999 and qualifying for them in 2000, where they lost to the Cleveland Rockers 2 games to 1.
    More Details Hide Details
    Peck was awarded the US Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Coach of the Year, the WBCA Coach of the Year, the AP College Basketball Coach of the Year and the Naismith College Coach of the Year awards in 1999.
    More Details Hide Details
    The team won the 1999 NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Tournament (the first national championship in Purdue women's basketball history; the Purdue men's only basketball title came in 1932), winning all six of its games by at least 10 points, including a 62 - 45 victory over Duke in the title game.
    More Details Hide Details Peck was named Women’s Basketball Coach of the Year by the Associated Press, as well as becoming the first woman and the first African American to win the Winged Foot Award (which honored the best coach in college basketball) from the New York Athletic Club. Two weeks after guiding Purdue to the title, Peck was in Orlando preparing the Miracle for their upcoming season. To date, Peck is the only African-American to coach a women’s Division I basketball national championship team. The title is also the only one in women’s college basketball by a member of the Big Ten Conference.
  • 1998
    So after struggling with the idea of leaving Purdue after just one season as their coach, Peck again called Williams, asking him if she could remain at Purdue for the 1998–99 season and then go to Orlando for the start of the WNBA season.
    More Details Hide Details He granted her request. In July it was announced that Peck would be the first head coach and general manager of the Orlando team (now named the Miracle), and coach at Purdue for one last season. The friction between Peck and her players eased, after the team took a preseason trip to Switzerland and France for exhibition games. By the start of the season, the team was together, and Peck would neither discuss the fact that she was leaving nor answer any questions about Orlando. Led by Katie Douglas, Stephanie White and Ukari Figgs, the Boilermakers posted a 28 - 1 record during the regular season, the lone loss coming by one point against Stanford.
    In June 1998 Peck accepted the job with a four-year contract.
    More Details Hide Details Despite accepting this new role, Peck was faced with a dilemma: having to return to Purdue to tell her team that they would once again have to play under a new coach. After she broke the news, some of her players felt betrayed and angry, some of them even telling her so personally.
  • 1995
    Peck went on to serve as an assistant coach at the University of Kentucky during the 1995 - 96 season.
    More Details Hide Details After this season, she received another assistant coaching job, this time at Purdue University under Nell Fortner, who had just replaced the fired Lin Dunn. The Boilermakers finished 17 - 11 during the 1996 - 97 season and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. At the end of this season, Fortner was offered the position of head coach of the USA Women's basketball team for the 2000 Summer Olympics and was leaving Purdue. She handed over the reins of head coach to Peck, who became Purdue’s third head coach in as many seasons. Vanderbilt hired Stephanie White as women's head basketball coach, and Carolyn will serve as associate head coach. During Peck’s first season as head coach (1997 - 98), Purdue went 23 - 10 with an Elite Eight appearance. Things appeared to be looking up for the following season; the bulk of the team was returning.
  • 1993
    Peck’s coaching career began in 1993. She returned to her home state to serve as an assistant coach for the Tennessee Lady Vols under coach Pat Summitt for two seasons. The Lady Vols posted 30-win seasons and won the Southeastern Conference championship during both seasons: 31 - 2 in 1993 - 94, and 34 - 3 in 1994 - 95.
    More Details Hide Details The latter team lost to the undefeated, Rebecca Lobo-led Connecticut Huskies in the NCAA Championship game, the school's and head coach Geno Auriemma's first National Championship.
