Call elevated to Associate Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Eastern Michigan

Eastern Michigan University Head Women’s Basketball Coach Fred Castro has announced the promotion of Adam Call to associate head coach Friday, Nov. 2. Call is entering his third year as an assistant for Castro.

“I am happy to announce the promotion of Adam Call to associate head coach,” Castro exclaimed. “In his two years at Eastern Michigan, Adam has positively impacted every aspect of our program with his outside-the-box mindset. Our student-athletes have truly benefited from his efforts both on and off the court.”

“It has been an honor to be a part of the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball program and the University as a whole over the last two years,” Call said. “I am very honored and look forward to continuing to work with our great staff and student-athletes to build a program that will compete for Mid-American Conference titles and postseason berths in the very near future. Being able to coach and mentor these young women on and off the court is a privilege and responsibility that I do not take lightly.”

This past season, Call was crucial in the development of EMU’s guards. Most notably, he guided Danielle Minott and Courtnie Lewis to All-MAC honors. Minott, after rewriting the single-game record book, landed on the All-MAC Third Team, while Lewis put together one of the greatest freshman campaigns in program history. Lewis scored the second-most points by a freshman Eagle en route to All-MAC Honorable Mention and MAC All-Freshmen honors, while also finishing top-10 nationally in scoring among freshmen.

Additionally, Call worked with Sasha Dailey, who finished her time in the Green and White ranked second in games played (131), tied for fifth in steals (243), seventh in field goal attempts (1,306), tied for 10th in field goals made (507) and steals average (1.9), and 15th in minutes played (3,018) and scoring (1,247).

With the addition of Carlos Adamson to the staff this offseason, Call will shift to working with EMU’s posts.
