February 13th

All New!

Joanne Palombo-McCallie last appeared on The Nite Show in 1998. At the time, she was the head coach of the University of Maine's Womens Basketball program, seeking the team's first win in NCAA postseason history. (She would lead the team to accomplish that feat in 1999.) After Maine, she went on to coach at Michigan State and then Duke, where she has spent the last 13 seasons. Coach P's book, Secret Warrior is due to be released on Feb. 16, and chronicles her journey with bipolar disorder. She was diagnosed with the disorder while coaching in Maine, and includes some personal details about the journey in the book, as well as comments from former U-Maine players like Cindy Blodgett and Amy Vachon. The book can be pre-ordered prior to its release on Feb. 16.
