Bay Makes Women's Basketball Coaching Change
ESCANABA---There’s been a change at the head of the Bay College women’s basketball program. Matt Gregory has been named the new head coach for the remainder of the season, and will take over the helm immediately.
He replaces Rob Robinson, who coached the team the past two seasons. Bay College President Laura Coleman could not comment further on the change, citing employee confidentiality.
“Bay College is taking the women’s basketball program in a different direction,” Coleman said. “We’re pleased to have Matt finish the season with our young women.”
Gregory has been the assistant coach for the men’s program in all three years of its existence, and joined the women’s program this season.
Gregory will make his head coaching debut this Saturday as the Norse (14-9) host tenth-ranked Bryant & Stratton at the Bay College Gym. Game time is 1:00 and it will be broadcast on Maverick 106.3 and www.radioresultsnetwork.com.
The following is a press release from Bay College.
