NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Angie Potthoff, an assistant women's basketball coach at the University of Notre Dame for the past five seasons, has been named associate director for women's basketball operations & technology, head coach Muffet McGraw announced Wednesday.

In her new position, Potthoff will coordinate all technology aspects for the Fighting Irish women's basketball program, including in-game video operations, film exchange and scouting data compilation. In addition, she will coordinate recruiting efforts on behalf of the program to include: preparation and distribution of recruiting materials; coordinating official visits, and arranging logistics surrounding on-campus recruiting weekends. She also will serve as the liaison to the offices of athletics compliance and Academic Services for Student-Athletes on all academic and compliance issues, and she will assist with summer camp operations.

"I can't think of anyone better suited to take on this new challenge than Angie," McGraw said. "She's bright, creative, organized and extremely gifted when it comes to keeping us on the cutting edge of technology at this day in age. This is a wonderful new position, and I believe Angie will be a huge asset to our program in that role for years to come."

"I'm excited about this new opportunity and I'm looking forward to my new responsibilities with the team," Potthoff said. "I have enjoyed working with Coach McGraw during the past five seasons and have learned so much in that time. Notre Dame is an amazing place and I am so lucky to have the chance to be a part of an amazing University and basketball program."

Potthoff steps into her new role after a five-year stint as an assistant coach with the Fighting Irish, during which time she worked with the team's post players, coordinated equipment and apparel needs, and assisted with game scheduling, game scouting and practice planning. In that time, Potthoff successfully tutored several Notre Dame post players, most notably junior forward Becca Bruszewski (Valparaiso, Ind./Wheeler), who more than doubled her scoring and rebounding outputs from her freshman to sophomore seasons, and has been a reliable threat, both on the blocks and from the perimeter, since moving into the starting lineup in 2008-09. What's more, Potthoff worked with senior center Erica Williamson (Charlotte, N.C./South Mecklenburg) throughout her four-year career, helping her finish eighth on the school's career blocked shots list (125) and earn a place on the 2006-07 BIG EAST All-Freshman Team.

 

 

Potthoff currently lives in South Bend with her eight-month-old daughter, Ellie, who was born just before the start of fall practices in August 2009.
