Patricia Charity

Patrice Charity came to Blue Star as a consultant in the spring of 2013 after spending the past season at Ohio University and the two prior to the Bobcats at the University of Buffalo. Charity has spent over 25 years at NCAA Division I women's basketball coaching.

During her career in women's basketball, Charity has worked as an assistant coach, associate head coach and head coach at several Division I programs in such conferences as the SEC, Pac 10, WAC, Big West, Mountain West and the MAC. Charity also has worked with the NWBDL and has helped her teams reach three NCAA Tournaments.

Prior to her work at Hawai'i, Charity's career included stops at Long Beach State (2002-03), UNLV (2001-02, NCAA Tournament appearance), Alabama (1997-2000, Two NCAA Tournament appearances) and Arizona (1987-90). She also worked in two separate stints with her alma mater Western Michigan. From 1982-1987, she worked as an assistant coach with Broncos, and from 1990-97 was the head coach in Kalamazoo.

A standout player at Western Michigan, Charity was an honorable mention All-American in 1978 and '80 and also a member of the U.S. silver medal-winning team at the 1977 World Games. She also played in the initial Women's All- American Classic in Philadelphia in 1977 and was one of 15 candidates for the Wade Trophy, honoring the nation's top collegiate player. Charity is the only player in school history to record 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in her career. In 1993, Charity was inducted into WMU's Athletic Hall of Fame.

Charity graduated with a B.S. in education with a minor in recreation and coaching from Western Michigan in 1981 and received her M.S. in administration in 1990 from Western Michigan. She and her family presently resides in Michigan.
