Green Bay Announces Contract Extension Through 2024-25 For Head Coach Kevin Borseth

 Green Bay and head women’s basketball coach Kevin Borseth have agreed to a contract extension through the 2024-25 season, Director of Athletics Charles Guthrie announced on Monday.

“We are very pleased to extend Kevin Borseth‘s contract through the 2025 season,” said Guthrie. “KB is unquestionably one of the finest basketball coaches in the country. He embodies UW-Green Bay’s ongoing commitment to the development of our student-athletes. We are thankful to Kevin and his family for all they’ve done to this point and we look forward to our program’s bright future under his leadership.”

Borseth, who recently led the Phoenix to its 19th-consecutive Horizon League title and the program’s 17th NCAA Tournament appearance last season, is in his 15th season overall at Green Bay and owns a winning percentage of .798 with the Phoenix. He is 213-24 (.899) all-time in Horizon League play.

“I am honored to be the head women’s basketball coach at an incredible university with a top-notch basketball tradition,” said Borseth. “UW-Green Bay is a special place. My wife, Connie, and I love being at UWGB and raising our family here in Green Bay. I would like to thank Dr. Gary Miller and Charles Guthrie for their leadership, support and most importantly their belief in me. Due to the hard work of our players and amazing staff, we have enjoyed great success on and off the court over the last several years. I am excited about the future of Green Bay women’s basketball. Go Phoenix!”

This season, Green Bay has piled up an impressive 23-3 record and is currently ranked in the Top 25 in both the Associated Press and USA Today polls. Borseth has led GB to a 13-2 record in Horizon League play thus far, and is now two wins away from securing at least a share of the program’s 20th-straight Horizon League Regular Season Championship this season.

Borseth owns a career coaching record of 685-264, approaching the 700 career wins milestone. He has coached a total of 31 years, including 15 years for Green Bay where he has amassed an impressive record of 373-94. He has garnered Horizon League Coach of the Year honors in eight of his 14 seasons at Green Bay and will look to secure yet another No. 1 seed at Motor City Madness in Detroit.

The Phoenix will visit UIC tonight in Chicago before returning home this weekend for the final two games of the regular season. GB is currently one game ahead of IUPUI in the league standings and holds the tiebreaker over the Jaguars having swept the regular season series.
