BOWLING GREEN – Bowling Green State University women’s basketball assistant coach Ali Mann has resigned for personal reasons, the school announced today.
BGSU officials declined further comment on the resignation, which is effective immediately.
Mann was in her first season as an assistant under first-year head coach Jennifer Roos. The program will not hire a replacement for Mann until after the current season ends.
Mann was one of the top players in the program's history, leading BG to Mid-American Conference regular-season and tournament titles in each of her final three seasons, helping the Falcons become the first team to advance to the Round of 16 in the 2007 NCAA Tournament.
The native of Chelsea, Mich., finished her career ranked second in school history in career scoring and third in rebounding, with 1,825 career points and 911 boards. She earned all-conference honors in each of her four seasons, and became just the sixth player in MAC history to be named MAC Player of the Year, MAC Freshman of the Year and MAC Tournament MVP during her career.
