I am a perspective student at a few of these schools and I am wondering if I should be worried about coaches leaving and whom their replacements would be.

Don’t be worried, use it as an opportunity!

Prioritize making a list of schools you know you’ll be happy at. Don’t bank on the coach making or breaking that for you. Once you have a list of schools you know you’ll be happy at, then you can look at things like the coach to make your final decision.

Thanks for the advice. I have multiple schools that are very similar and I feel like my relationship and the coach will make or break my decision

Can’t hurt to look at other schools too
