NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Vanderbilt hired Stephanie White of the WNBA's Indiana Fever as its women's basketball coach Tuesday, and now the Commodores are ready to be even more patient.

White, the first rookie coach to lead her team to the WNBA Finals last year, will finish out this season with the Fever, whose season just began this month. That's fine with Vanderbilt, where athletic director David Williams noted White has been a winner at every phase of her career.

"She wants to coach at Vanderbilt, and we believe she is just the person to lead our program back into national prominence," Williams said in a statement.
