Ex-Michigan women's basketball guard Courtney Boylan gets assistant coach job at Northern Kentucky

By Nick Baumgardner

Courtney Boylan has taken the next step in her basketball career.

And it took her less than three months to figure it out.

Boylan, a former Michigan women's basketball guard who wrapped up her career in 2012, was officially hired Monday as an assistant coach at Northern Kentucky University.

At NKU, Boylan will re-join former Michigan assistant Dawn Plitzuweit, who was hired as the program's head coach last month.

"She is a consummate leader and absolutely refuses to be outworked,” Plitzuweit said in a statement. “She led Michigan from the bottom of the Big Ten to two WNIT appearances and finished her career by leading the Wolverines to the NCAA Tournament.

"Courtney will be able to share her experiences as a player at the highest level and we are thrilled that she will be here at NKU.”

Boylan averaged 12.7 points per game as a senior and earned Big Ten Conference honorable mention. She also averaged 32.1 minutes per contest and scored in double figures in 25 games, helping Michigan advance to the NCAA Tournament.

She finished her career with 125 games played, ranking second on the school's all-time list.
