Coach Clyburn

Morgan has been preparing for a coaching career ever since her senior year at Stanford, when she helped with game prep as she sat out due to injury. In the ensuing three years, she has continued to coach in addition to working as a software engineer in the biotech industry. She has run basketball clinics (in the Bay Area and in Suriname), assisted with several girls' basketball teams and is a director of the Bay Area Basketball Academy.

All that experience has led to a second job for Morgan — girls' basketball coach at Menlo-Atherton High School. She will take over for Pam Wimberly, the winningest girls' basketball coach in Northern California history, who had coached at Menlo-Atherton for 41 years.

It has been reported that Menlo-Atherton wants a more modern, fast-paced style of play. Morgan is well-prepared to provide that.

Morgan will continue her career with Autonomic Technologies while pursuing her passion for coaching with the new challenge at Menlo-Atherton.
