UWGB brings back Borseth as women's basketball head coach

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Women's basketball Kevin Borseth is leaving Michigan to return to Wisconsin-Green Bay.

   Borseth will be introduced in a news conference in Green Bay on Thursday. He will replace Matt Bollant, who recently left for Illinois.

   It's a surprising return for Borseth, who spent the past five seasons as the head coach at Michigan after leaving Green Bay. The Wolverines announced Borseth's resignation Wednesday.

   Borseth coached the Phoenix from 1998-2007, leading them to the postseason in all nine seasons, including seven trips to the NCAA tournament. Borseth was 216-62 at Green Bay.

   In a statement, Borseth says he and his family "are so thrilled to return to Green Bay and to the many friends and fans in the community."
