James Howard was named the 10th head coach in Georgetown women's basketball history in June, 2017. He was promoted after serving as the associate head coach for two seasons.

Howard returned to the Hilltop after being an assistant coach for the Blue & Gray during the 1997-98 season.

"I'm excited to introduce James as the new head coach for our women's basketball program," Reed said. "He is an excellent coach with many years of experience and a familiarity with our student-athletes. I am confident he will continue to build upon our foundation as we strive to be one of the best teams in the BIG EAST Conference."

The last two seasons, Howard has helped the Hoyas to a 33-27 record and two-consecutive appearances in the Women's National Invitation Tournament (WNIT). He coached All-BIG EAST honorees Dorothy Adomako and Dionna White in each of the past two years on the Hilltop.

Howard came to Georgetown from Bethune-Cookman University where he spent four seasons, including three as the associate head coach. The Washington, D.C., native began there as the recruiting coordinator. He helped bring in two-time All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) honoree Kailyn Williams.

Prior to Bethune-Cookman, Howard was the recruiting coordinator and associate head coach at Howard University under former Hoya Niki Reid Geckeler. He went to Howard when Reid Geckeler earned the job in 2008. He remained there for three seasons, moving into the role of associate head coach during the 2010-11 season. Howard recruited the class that led the way to back-to-back 20-win seasons.

Howard began his coaching career in the men's game as a student assistant coach at Greensboro College for two seasons (1987-89). He then served as a men's assistant coach at Wesley College for two years, before switching to the women's game in 1991.

Howard was the head women's basketball coach at Wesley from 1991-97 where he was 75-69 over six seasons. Following his one-year stint at Georgetown, he served as the director of basketball operations (1998-99) at the University of Maryland before being promoted to assistant coach (1999-2000).

In 2000, he moved on to George Mason University where he was an assistant coach/recruiting coordinator for seven seasons. Howard spent one season (2007-08) at Delaware State before returning to the District to coach at Howard.

Howard is a member of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and the Black Coaches Association (BCA). He was chosen by the NBA to do a coaches clinic in Bermuda and founded the first chapter of Future Farmers of America (FFA) in Washington, D.C.

He received his bachelor's degree from Greensboro College in 1991. Howard has two grown sons, Marco and Michael. He resides in Camp Springs, Md., and is engaged to Donna Harris.
