Assistant Coach Jeff Strohm resigns


MILWAUKEE, June 29 – Marquette assistant basketball coach Jeff Strohm will resign from his position to pursue other basketball opportunities, head coach Tom Crean announced today.

“Jeff is moving on from Marquette to pursue other opportunities in basketball and we fully support this decision,” said Crean. “We appreciate his efforts for Marquette during his three years.”

Strohm joined the Golden Eagles’ staff in 2002 following a five-year stint at the University of Utah.

“I’m very thankful to have worked in a program like Marquette,” said Strohm. “Marquette has been a great place for me to work, and the Marquette family has been wonderful to me and my family.”

A 16-year veteran at the collegiate level, Strohm was an assistant coach at Northern Illinois from 1991-97. Prior to his time at Northern Illinois, Strohm was the recruiting coordinator for Lake Land College in Mattoon, Ill., from 1989-91. He got his start in coaching at the prep ranks as an assistant at Casey Westfield High School (1987-88 ) and Sullivan High School (1988-89 ).

The search for a new assistant will begin immediately.

“We are focused on putting together the best staff possible and will move rapidly in that direction,” said Crean.
