Caldwell resigns as UCCS womens' basketball coach
University of Colorado at Colorado Springs womenâ€TMs basketball coach Jessika Caldwell resigned her position, UCCS athletic director Stephen Kirkham announced Wednesday.
The Mountain Lions finished 8-19 this past season and 6-13 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play. In her four seasons as coach, UCCS went a combined 41-71 and 28-48 in RMAC games.
â€œI really loved my time at UCCS and I believe that this program holds great promise for the future,â€ said Caldwell
Caldwell guided her team to the RMAC playoffs in 2005-06, her first season as coach. That team went 12-15 (9-10 RMAC) before being beaten by Fort Lewis in the first round of the RMAC playoffs.
One of the brightest highlights of Caldwellâ€TMs tenure came at the beginning of the 2007-08 season when the Mountain Lions beat Winona State, Limestone and Bellarmine to win the Group Endurance championship of the 2007 Disney's Division II Tip-Off East Coast Classic. Her team overcame a 20-point deficit in the final game to win the tournament.
