Frank Goldsberry has been named as an assistant coach for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee women's basketball team.
Goldsberry had served as the women's director of basketball operations and video coordinator at Dayton University since 2003 before adding the title of assistant director of compliance to his duties last season.
"I am thrilled Frank has decided to be a part of my staff," head coach Kyle Rechlicz said. "I value him as a coach, confidant and friend. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our team and I know the players will share with me a great sense of respect for what he has accomplished. His coaching philosophy is very much in-line with the direction I am hoping to take this program. I am looking forward to learning from him on the court this year and I know we will both grow and gain knowledge from this experience."
Goldsberry brings along an impressive coaching resume, most notably putting together a 170-16 record from 1996-2003 at Chaminade-Julienne High School in Dayton. Goldsberry led C-J to two Ohio Division II state championships (1999, 2003) and to the USA Today's No. 1 ranking in the country in 2002. The Eagles were also state runners-up in 1998 and 2001.
In three of his final four seasons at Chaminade-Julienne, the team claimed the top spot of the final AP poll. He was named Division II State Coach of the Year in 1999 and District Coach of the Year in both 1998 and 1999.
Players that Goldsberry coached at the high school level include National High School Player of the Year and current Minnesota Lynx forward Tamika Williams, who helped guide Connecticut to 2000 and 2002 NCAA titles. He also coached Notre Dame point guard Megan Duffy and Ohio State's Brandie Hoskins. Overall, he coached nine NCAA Division I players.
Prior to his stint at C-J, Goldsberry was head coach of the boys basketball team at Northmont High School from 1993-1996. There, he posted a 42-24 overall record and led Northmont to its first district final in 20 years.
