Green Bay Athletics will name Kevin Borseth as the women’s basketball coach on Thursday. Borseth compiled a 216-62 record in nine seasons at Green Bay.
Athletics Director Ken Bothof said ““Having the chance to welcome Kevin and his family back to Green Bay is a great privilege, and I know I speak for so many fans when saying I am thrilled to know that this program will be under his leadership moving forward.”
Under Borseth’s watch from 1998-2007, Green Bay advanced to the postseason in all nine seasons, including seven trips to the NCAA Tournament. The Phoenix also won the regular season conference championship in each of his nine seasons at the helm.
Borseth has spent the past five seasons as the head coach at the University of Michigan, where he compiled an overall record of 87-73. Borseth took over a program that had won just 21 games in the prior three seasons combined and led the Wolverines to 19 wins and a postseason berth in his first season in 2007-08. It was reported on www.goblue.com that Borseth had informed his team and staff of his resignation at a Wednesday afternoon meeting.
All told, the 25-year head coaching veteran has an impressive record of 528-232 in his stints at Michigan Tech, Green Bay and Michigan.
