Carolyn Baker - Assistant Coach - 1st Season

Carolyn Baker joins the University of Michigan-Dearborn Women's Basketball Coaching Staff for the 2011-2012 season as a key Assistant. Coach Baker brings strength, knowledge and a winning spirit with her more than 10 years of coaching experience in AAU and High School girl's basketball. Coach Baker will impart inventive skill training, mentoring and relentless scouting and recruiting efforts to the Women's Basketball program.

In 2010-2011, Carolyn, as an assistant coach, helped lead the Inkster High School Girl's Basketball team to a Class A State Championship. She also provided invaluable strategy for practice, scouting and game management. During her high school and AAU coaching career, Carolyn has helped develop numerous NCAA Division I student-athletes, including former U of M (Ann Arbor) guard/forward, Ashley Jones (Southfield, MI) who now plays internationally in Luxembourg, as well as current Baylor University starter, Destiny Williams (Benton Harbor, MI).

Coach Baker played collegiately at Chicago State University, and locally at Detroit Pershing High School. Carolyn will use her networking and recruiting abilities to connect to women's basketball prospects throughout the Metro Detroit area, Southeast Michigan and the Midwest region.

Entering her first season as Assistant Coach at UM-Dearborn, Baker brings championship guidance, leadership, and a competitive drive. She will work closely with the guards this year, imparting a competitive and challenging regimen that will help prepare for the rigors of the upcoming season.

"Carolyn has an impressive eye for the game of basketball. She is an effective teacher and touts an impressive basketball resumé. As the team transitions this year, Carolyn will play a significant role in shaping the new, competitive identity of UM-Dearborn Women's Basketball. Her compassion for nurturing athletes and her ability to diagnose game situations makes her a 'game-changing' coach." - Coach Sheri Washington
