Baldwin City Baker University women’s basketball coach Susan Decker announced Monday that she resigned her post after 11 seasons leading the program.
Decker, a former NAIA All-American at Tabor College from 1989-1992, said she felt this was the right time to transition to a new professional challenge and turn the program over to new leadership. Decker will expand her current part-time teaching role to become a full-time faculty member at the Baker’s College of Arts and Sciences in the fall of 2011.
“I am really excited for the opportunity that Baker has provided for me to move in a new direction with my teaching career,” Decker said in a Baker news release. “Baker basketball will continue to hold a special place in my heart and I will always be grateful for the opportunity that was given to me by Dan Harris and Baker University 11 years ago to become the women’s basketball coach. I want to send a special thank you to all the administration, faculty, staff, current and former players of Baker. This has been a tremendous experience in my life and one I will never forget.”
A national search for a new women’s basketball coach will begin immediately.
