Alabama, Auburn women's programs might be on rise


The programs haven't been the same since. There's plenty of optimism now, though.

"The reception we've had this year from our fans has been incredible," Williams-Flournoy said. "They're very excited and have come to our games. They're right now telling us they can't wait for the season to start. I'm like, 'Oh my god, really?' They're really excited and they're so happy about the direction of the program and they love our style of play.

"The fan support here is unbelievable."

Curry takes over one of the few struggling programs in Alabama athletics, which has collected two national titles in football in the last two academic years, along with championships in men's and women's golf, softball and gymnastics.

"Obviously the brand at this university is as good as anybody in the country," Curry said. "It's exciting for me to have this kind of brand to recruit to."
