Borseth returning to coach Green Bay women

Apr 4, 2012 - 10:06 PM Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Kevin Borseth has resigned as head women's basketball coach at Michigan after five seasons to take the same position at Green Bay, both schools announced Wednesday.

Borseth previously coached Green Bay from 1998-2007 and led the Phoenix into the postseason all nine seasons, including seven trips to the NCAA Tournament.

He was 87-73 in the last five seasons at Michigan and landed the program its first NCAA Tournament berth since 2000-01 this year.

Borseth said in a statement that he and his family were "thrilled" to return to Green Bay. He will be officially re-introduced at a press conference on Thursday.

"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," said Borseth.

He will take over for Matt Bollant, who was hired as women's coach at Illinois last week.

Green Bay went 31-2 this past season and was knocked out of the NCAA tourney by Kentucky in the second round.
