Vice President of Athletics Sandy Barbour announced the selection of Carolyn Kieger as the sixth head coach of the women’s basketball program on April 3, 2019. Kieger, a 2019 Naismith Women’s Coach of the Year Award semifinalist, guided Marquette University to the top of the Big East Conference and three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances as the Golden Eagles’ head coach.
Kieger, a 2006 Marquette graduate, comes to Happy Valley after five years at the helm of her alma mater, posting a 99-64 overall record. During the past three seasons, Kieger led the Golden Eagles to sparkling 76-26 mark (43-11 in Big East), which included a pair of Big East regular-season championships and a Big East Tournament Championship.
Marquette made three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances for the first time in 20 years, advancing to the round of 32 the past two seasons. Widely regarded as one of the nation’s brightest and rising coaching stars, Kieger’s first Marquette team in 2014-15 won nine games. She proceeded to lead the Golden Eagles to 14, 25, 24 and a program-record 27 victories over the next four seasons. Kieger was named a semifinalist for the 2019 Naismith Women’s Coach of the Year Award after leading the Golden Eagles to one of the best seasons in program history this past season. Marquette captured its second consecutive, but first-ever outright Big East regular-season title and a posted a school-best 27-8 record. The Golden Eagles were ranked in every Associated Press poll of the season for the first time in school history.
