Eric Reveno
Eric Reveno was named head coach of the men's basketball program on April 10, 2006, becoming the 20th coach in Pilot history. He previously served nine successful seasons as an assistant at Stanford. Reveno has spearheaded Portland's rebuilding effort and has already achieved remarkable results in his first four years on The Bluff.
 
Reveno led the Pilots to a 21-11 record and second consecutive postseason appearance (CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament -CIT) last season. The 21 wins matched a school record at the Division I level and the Pilots earned a Top 25 ranking in the Associated Press Poll for the first time in 50 years after marquee early season wins over UCLA and Minnesota. Portland also went 10-4 in the WCC to match the best league record in program history.
 
Reveno was named the 2009 West Coast Conference and District 9 Coach of the Year after leading the Pilots to a 19-13 record and invitation to the inaugural CIT. It marked a 10-win improvement from 2008, was the most wins in a season for Portland and the program's first postseason appearance since 1996. The Pilots also finished third in the WCC standings (9-5) and posted its first win over a ranked opponent (84-66 over #18 Saint Mary's) since 1981.
 
Reveno preaches a disciplined style of play, has a track record of player development, and respects the role of the student-athlete. He has built the foundation for future success through quality recruiting and an emphasis on development, both on the court and in the weight room.

Jim Sollars
Jim Sollars
With ten years of previous head coaching experience, Jim Sollars was hired in 1986 as the head women's basketball coach at the University of Portland. In his first 11 years at Portland, Sollars also served the university as a history professor. He ended his 31-year teaching career upon announcing his retirement following the 1996-97 academic year.
 
The Pilots have been to two straight post-seasons after receiving an invite to the inaugural Women's Basketball Invitational following the 2009-10 season. Portland went 18-13 in 2009-10 for the program's most wins in a season in 12 years. It's also only fifth time ever to win 18 games at the NCAA DI level for the Pilots. Portland also posted back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in 10 years.
 
2008-09 was a season of milestones for the Pilots, who were rewarded with their first post-season action in 10 years. After posting its first winning record since the 1998-99 season, Portland was invited to take on cross-town rival Portland State in a WNIT First Round game at the Stott Center on March 19. The Pilots, who went 17-14 overall and 10-4 in the West Coast Conference, registered their most wins since the 1997-98 squad won 19 games. Portland finished second in the WCC for its best league finish since 1996-97, while the 10 conference wins were the most for UP since that same season. Portland also defeated every WCC team in 2008-09, which hadn't happened since its undefeated run through the league in 1997.
 
Sollars was named the 2008-09 WCC Coach of the Year for an unprecedented fifth time. Sollars, who was last named coach of the year in 1997, has nabbed that honor more times than any other coach in conference history. He also has more WCC wins (149) than any other coach in the 22-year history of the conference and is 335-360 (.482) all-time at Portland.
