UI Hires New Women’s Basketball Coach

The University of Idaho has hired a new head women’s basketball coach.

Carrie Eighmey comes to Moscow from the University of Nebraska at Kearney where she has been head coach for the past 8 seasons.  She led UNK to three straight NCAA Division II Tournaments including a trip to the Sweet 16 in 2021.

Eighmey replaces Jon Newlee who led the Vandal women’s basketball program for 15 years.  Newlee and the athletics department decided to part ways earlier this month.
