French hasn't been a college head coach, so how that works out is yet to be determined. The most difficult challenge is not that, but rather is to re-build a program that has a storied past but a recent steep descent. It will take time, but I'm not worried, she was one of my three top choices. Those who think the Youth National Team program is about winning youth championships aren't happy with her for her work with the U20s. Others, like me, think the program is about -- and really, only about -- producing 1 to 2 players per year to step into senior Women's National Team roster spots. In terms of doing that job, these players have come from the U20s during the three years she was their head coach: Lindsay Horan, Mallory Pugh, Andi Sullivan, Rose Lavelle, Jane Campbell, and the very young Ashley Sanchez.
