John Ishee is the new Broncs women’s basketball associate head coach, as announced by the University of Texas-Pan American Department of Intercollegiate Athletics Tuesday.
Ishee, who started his coaching career as the head coach for the boys and girls team at Prentiss High School in Mississippi, will be reuniting with Larry Tidwell, the new Broncs head coach, after working together last season for Lamar University. Ishee approached the University with more than 20 years of collegiate coaching experience, as both head coach and assistant.
In this past season, Ishee helped the Lamar Lady Cardinals to a 22-11 record and a spot on the Women’s Basketball Invitational quarterfinals.
“We’re happy to have John on our initial staff at UTPA,” said Tidwell in a press release. “John brings a tremendous work ethic to the table every day.”
