Former UWM Standout Greger Announces Resignation
July 29, 2005
MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Jennifer Greger has announced her resignation as an assistant women's basketball coach at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Greger has been on the coaching staff at UWM for the past three seasons, spending this past year as an assistant coach after two years at the director of basketball operations. Greger also worked as the assistant director of camps and intramurals at UWM from 1999-2002 and, prior to that, served an earlier stint for the Panther women (1999-2001) and spent a year at Western Michigan University (1998-99).
"Jen has been a tremendous asset to this program and no doubt will continue to be in her role as an alum and a fan," head coach Sandy Botham said. "She made so many contributions as a coach here and has been a big part of the success we have enjoyed. Like so many other former Panthers, she will be successful in whatever she chooses to do."
"My time here at UWM has been a great experience for me with both playing and coaching," Greger said. "Sandy is definitely going to continue to take this program in the right direction both on and off the court. I will miss the staff and players and will still be here in heart supporting the Panthers; a great team and great program that will continue to succeed."
On the court, Greger's play earned her a number of spots in the UWM record book. She played for the Panthers from 1994-97, ending her career as UWM's leader in three-pointers made with 125. She currently sits fourth on Milwaukee's all time scoring list with 1,385 points and, during her senior season, she was named the MCC Player of the Year while averaging a team and league-best 19.7 points per game. The Panthers added 12 wins to their previous year's win total during that campaign to post the fifth-best turnaround in Division I basketball.
