Western State University Colorado has picked up a familiar name to fill its coaching opening: former Arizona and Wisconsin assistant Geoff Hanson.
Hanson coached under Eric Hansen at Wisconsin, then followed Hansen to Arizona. But he left Zona for undisclosed reasons at the end of 2013. Now he resurfaces as the interim head coach with the Western State Colorado women’s program, a member of the Division II Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC).
Western State was just reinstated two years ago, and is still working its way into contention in the conference. The Western State women were 5th in the RMAC last year. Former head coach Brad Smith left for Binghamton over the summer, opening the door for Hanson.
