Vice Chancellor Trev Alberts announced today that Omaha Athletics will not renew the contract of head women’s basketball coach Brittany Lange.
“Brittany has been with us throughout our Division I history, and her leadership during that time was important to our successful reclassification,” said Alberts. “However, we have reached a point where our women’s basketball team needs to reach a new level of competitiveness, and I felt a coaching change was the best way to accomplish that goal.”
“We appreciate all that Brittany has done to forge a connection between her team, our fans and the Omaha community,” added Alberts. “She has always had a thorough understanding of what it takes to be a successful student-athlete and has done her best to mentor her players accordingly.”
Lange became the Mavericks head coach prior to the 2013-14 and guided the Mavericks to a record of 80-124 overall and 31-77 in the Summit League. The team’s best finish came in 2016-17 when it finished 16-15 and fifth in the Summit League with a record of 8-8. The Mavericks won a first round matchup with South Dakota in the Summit Tournament before losing 84-82 to eventual champion Western Illinois in the semifinals.
Lange joined the Mavericks in 2011-12 as the Director of Basketball Operations. She was elevated to the role of assistant coach for the 2012-13 season.Brittany Lange Omaha Summit League
