DURHAM, N.H. - University of New Hampshire head women's basketball coach Sue Johnson announced today the hiring of Lindsay Gottleib as assistant women's basketball coach. Gottleib fills the vacancy created by the departure of Leslie Cooper after the 2000-01 season.
For the past two seasons, Gottleib has served as assistant coach at Syracuse University. Her responsibilities there included film exchange, recruiting, scheduling, working with guards and post players as well as monitoring team academics. She also served as assistant director of the Syracuse girls' basketball camp.
Gottleib was a four-year member of the women's basketball team at Brown University, serving as student assistant coach for the 1998-99 season. As a student assistant, she dealt with recruiting, player development and the overall management of the program. Gottleib received the team's Heart and Soul award in 1997.
She has coached for Westchester Basketball Association AAU and the Kutsher's Sports Academy, and has served as a camp counselor at Brown and UConn. In 1996, she served as an intern at the Women's Sports Foundation where she directed the Mervyns Scholarship Program and coordinated the Sportswoman of the Year nominations and ballots.
A native of Scarsdale, N.Y., Gottleib earned her bachelor's degree in political science from Brown in 1999 and her master's in education from Syracuse this month.
