Albany tabs Colleen Mullen as head women’s basketball coach
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Colleen Mullen has been named women’s basketball coach at the University at Albany.
The school announced the hiring on Monday and Mullen will be introduced Tuesday afternoon in a press conference at SEFCU Arena on campus. She joins the Great Danes from Army, where she spent seven seasons, the last six as associate head coach under Dave Magarity.
Mullen, who played Division I basketball at Rhode Island, takes over a program that won six straight America East championships under predecessors Katie Abrahamson-Henderson and Joanna Bernabei-McNamee.
Before Army, Mullen also was an assistant at Lehigh and LIU Brooklyn. She got her start in coaching at Northern Illinois as director of basketball operations (2004-05), and was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Southern New Hampshire University for two seasons (2005-07).
