Mar 30, 2010

BOULDER - University of Colorado Athletic Director Mike Bohn announced Tuesday the search committee for the school's vacant women's basketball head coaching position.

Ceal Barry, the former CU women's coach for 22 seasons, will chair the 7-person committee.  Since her retirement in 2005, she has served as the school's associate athletic director for student services and is now also the senior woman's administrator (SWA).

She led Colorado to 12 NCAA appearances, including six trips to the Sweet 16 and three to the Elite Eight. A four-time Big Eight Conference Coach of the Year, and 1994 National Coach of the Year, Barry led the Buffaloes to 13 20-win seasons, four Big Eight Conference regular season titles and five postseason league championships including the inaugural Big 12 Tournament crown in 1997.

Other members include David Clough from the School of Engineering (he is CU's Faculty Athletic Representative to the Big 12 Conference); Tom McGrath, senior associate athletic director; Julie Manning, associate athletic director for compliance;  Kris Livingston, director of academic services for athletics; Leila Almahdy, associate athletic trainer, and Andy Horowitz of CU's Human Resources department.

Bohn announced on Monday that Kathy McConnell-Miller, CU's head coach the last five seasons, was not being retained.
