BGSU fires women’s basketball coach

Bowling Green State University Director of Athletics Bob Moosbrugger has announced that Jennifer Roos will not return as head women’s basketball coach for the 2018-19 season.

“I want to thank Coach Roos for the 17 years she has given to our women’s basketball program. She was a part of tremendous success within the program and we wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

Roos spent 17 years within the program, including the last six as head coach. Her teams went 92-97 overall, including a 30-5 record in 2013-14 that included a regular season Mid-American Conference Championship.

Roos is owed her prorated salary of $209,100 through May 1, 2019. The University could recoup some of that money if she finds other employment.

Moosbrugger will begin the search for a new head coach immediately.

“BGSU strives for excellence in all we do, whether in academics or athletics,” added Moosbrugger. “Our women’s basketball program has been a source of pride for our alumni and fans. We are committed to success in the classroom and on the court.”
