Dan Carey begins his season season on the staff of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee women's basketball team as the video coordinator.
Carey was most recently the head coach of the varsity program at Hamilton High School, developing the girls' team into one of the top programs in the state in his four years. Carey led the Chargers to the last two Greater Metro Conference championships, the first time in program history Hamilton had won a league title.
"Dan has a passion for the game of basketball and a value system that really fits our staff," head coach Kyle Rechlicz said. "He works exceptionally hard and wants to do whatever he can to make our program the class of the Horizon League. I am looking forward to seeing our program be elevated in a multitude of ways, in large part because of his enthusiasm and dedication for the Milwaukee community and Panther Athletics."
As video coordinator, Carey is in charge of all film exchange, editing and game breakdown for scouting and highlight video purposes. He also assists with the administrative side of the program.
Carey went 68-27 in four years at Hamilton, recording a 38-9 record his last two seasons which included a 25-3 mark in league play in that span. His first season at the school produced the program's first winning record since 1991.
Prior to that, his coaching career includes stints with Milwaukee Pius High School as a varsity assistant and junior varsity head coach, and with Holmen High School as the junior varsity assistant coach. He was also a health and fitness educator at Templeton Middle School in Sussex.
