Kevin Borseth takes Green Bay job
By Michael Rothstein WolverineNation
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan women's basketball coach Kevin Borseth has resigned to take over his old job at Green Bay.
Borseth had spent five years at Michigan and this season led the Wolverines to their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2000-01. In all, he led Michigan to four postseason appearances in five years after the Wolverines had not made any postseason for five seasons.
"My family and I have really enjoyed our time at Michigan," Borseth said in a statement. "We have made some terrific friends and we will miss everybody. I would like to thank everyone at the University of Michigan for giving me this opportunity to be the women's basketball coach, and I wish everyone the best in the future."
Borseth had come to Michigan from Green Bay, where he coached for nine seasons before going to the Wolverines. In those nine seasons, he made seven NCAA tournaments.
"My family and I are so thrilled to return to Green Bay and to the many friends and fans in the community," Borseth said in a statement on the Green Bay athletics website. "I am really excited to get to know the current players on the team and to continue to move Green Bay women's basketball forward."
Michigan was 20-12 this season, 8-8 in the Big Ten.
Green Bay returns four starters from a team that went 31-2 and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament. Coach Matt Bollant departed to take the head coaching job at Illinois.
