Rose-Hulman’s Prevo announces retirement

 Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology women’s basketball Coach Jon Prevo has announced his retirement following 17 seasons at the helm of the program, effective December 14, 2022.  

Prevo completes his Fightin’ Engineer career with an overall record of 213-189, including 149-107 in regular season conference games.  The Rose-Hulman women’s basketball program reached the NCAA Division III Tournament in 2017 and 2018 and won Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference regular season championships in 2016, 2017 and 2018 under Prevo’s leadership.  

The graduating class of 2019 finished with a 91-19 record in their 4-year era, including a 45-2 home record that included the nation’s longest consecutive home winning streak at 38 games.  Rose-Hulman also set an HCAC record with 39 consecutive conference wins from January 2017-January 2019.   

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Coach Prevo for his leadership and service to the department. He has been vital to the growth of this sport and we wish him the best in retirement,” said athletic director Ayanna Tweedy.

Prevo completed 29 basketball seasons at Rose-Hulman, serving as the longest tenured coach of the women’s program (17 years).  He also previously served as the men’s basketball assistant coach for 12 years.  The Engineer men’s team had a record of 184-128 in 12 seasons under the work of then-head coach Jim Shaw and Prevo.  

Rose-Hulman completed 2022-23 with a 2-3 record after announcing cancellation of the remaining season to protect the health of safety of student-athletes due to low roster numbers in early December. A national search will begin after the holiday break for the program’s next head coach.
