Megan Griffith Named Assistant Women's Basketball Coach
Princeton head women's basketball coach Courtney Banghart has announced Megan Griffith as an assistant coach for the 2012-13 campaign. Griffith, who was the Tigers' director of basketball operations from 2010-12, will serve as Princeton's recruiting coordinator and work with the perimeter players.
"It's with great excitement that we announce the addition of Megan Griffith to our coaching staff. As a former Ivy League standout, Meg's values align perfectly with what we're building here at Princeton. She brings enthusiasm, a commitment to leadership, a tireless work ethic, great character, genuine loyalty and a sincere love for the game to her new role as assistant coach. As a director of operations for us for the past two years, Meg was intimately involved with all aspects of our program and is a proven professional. Princeton's a special place. The people that have come through our program have built a tradition of excellence that has attracted many qualified applicants to this position. Yet, Meg emerged immediately as the very best one for the job. The entire Princeton program welcomes her to the coaching staff," said Banghart, who enters her sixth season at the helm of the program.
Griffith is a 2007 graduate of Columbia, where she captained the Lions for three seasons and was named an All-Ivy League selection twice. Following her graduation, Griffith played three years of professional basketball in Europe.
"The chance to not only grow in this profession, but to do so in a program like Princeton is ideal. I feel very fortunate to continue that growth as I shift gears and take on a coaching role on our staff. I'd like to thank Courtney for the opportunity to stay in the Princeton women's basketball family and remain working alongside a staff that epitomizes dedication and demonstrates an unwavering commitment to bettering all things involved in its program," said Griffith.
