ANGOLA, Ind. -- The Trine women's basketball team has promoted Andy Rang to Associate Head Coach, the team announced today.
Rang has served as an assistant coach for the Thunder the last six years and has played an instrumental role in guiding the program to the top of the MIAA. Over the past three seasons, Rang has had a guiding hand in leading Trine to one of the best turnarounds in program history, the team's first MIAA Tournament championship appearance and the program's first MIAA Championship, MIAA Tournament title and NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Tournament appearance this past season.
"Coach Rang is such a key part of our program and the success we have been able to achieve over the past three years," said Ryan Gould, head coach of the Trine women's basketball team. "He has a high level of investment in our players, program and university. Coach Rang's on-court knowledge and his ability to teach the game make him invaluable. It is such an honor for me to able to coach with such a close friend and I am excited for the future of the Trine women's basketball program."
Rang's promotion comes on the heels of a season that saw Trine go on an historic run to the team's first NCAA Tournament appearance and tie the school record with 25 wins. Along the way, the Thunder won the MIAA Championship on the final day of the regular season and clinched the MIAA Tournament title on home court in Hershey Hall.
Rang also serves as the Assistant Athletic Director for Trine University. He resides in Fort Wayne with his wife, Chandra. They have four children, Christian, Chandler, Carter and Avery.
