Wendy Larry (born March 25, 1955) was the head coach of the Old Dominion University Lady Monarchs women's basketball team. She coached the team in the 1997 NCAA National Championship game against the Lady Vols of the University of Tennessee in Cincinnati, Ohio. Her Lady Monarchs teams have reached a total of 20 NCAA Tournaments, set an NCAA record with 17 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) titles, and Larry coached in 608 career victories.
Larry was awarded the US Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Coach of the Year award in 1997.
In May 2011, Larry announced her retirement from Old Dominion, after her team did not reach the NCAA tournament in two successive seasons. The university did not offer to extend her contract, which had one year remaining.
