The Eastern Michigan women’s basketball team will officially begin the steps of looking for a new head coach today.
AnnMarie Gilbert, the previous head coach, has decided to resign from the school. She will leave the school today.
Derrick Gragg, the Eastern Michigan Athletic Director, said a search for the new head coach will begin immediately. Gilbert leaves the school during an NCAA investigation.
During Gilbert’s tenure, the school reported self-imposed violations in regards to practice and recruiting in 2010. The case is still currently ongoing.
Gilbert was 94-64 in her tenure at Eastern Michigan since arriving for the 2007-08 season. She guided the team to the NCAA Tournament this season.
Prior to taking over the Eastern Michigan position, she was an assistant coach for five years at Michigan State. She also served as a head coach at Oberlin for eight years.
