Southeast Missouri State to announce new women's basketball coach Thursday

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Southeast Missouri State has announced that it will introduce its next women's basketball coach during a news conference at 11 a.m. Thursday.

As reported in Wednesday's Southeast Missourian, all indications are that Wisconsin assistant Ty Margenthaler will take over the program.

Margenthaler, a 1997 SIU-Edwardsville graduate, was an assistant at Wisconsin the past five seasons. He served as the Badgers' recruiting coordinator.

Margenthaler was among three finalists interviewed at Southeast last week, along with TCU assistant Brian Ostermann and Dayton assistant Angie Russell.

Southeast is in the market for a women's basketball coach after John Ishee's contract was not renewed six weeks ago
