CAREY AND ROUX NAMED WOMENS BASKETBALL ASSISTANTS
— Maureen Magarity, head coach of the University of New
Hampshire women's basketball team, has announced the hiring
of Margaret Carey and Mike Roux as assistant coaches.
Carey comes to UNH after serving a year as an assistant coach with the Fordham University women's basketball team. Prior to her stint with the Rams, she spent a year at her alma mater, Mount St. Mary's University, where she served as the recruiting coordinator, helping the Mountaineers continue their string of 20-straight NEC Tournament appearances, while posting their best season since the 2000-01 campaign.
"I am thrilled to have Margaret join our staff," said Magarity. "Her experiences in various roles at the collegiate level, including time as a head coach, will greatly benefit our program. Her energy and relentless work ethic with recruiting will be a tremendous asset to our staff."
Prior to her time on the Mountaineers coaching staff, Carey was the head coach at Catholic University where she put together a 44-35 record from 2005-08, leading the Cardinals to the Capital Athletics Conference semifinals in her first year.
Before her time at Catholic University, Carey served as an assistant at Richard Stockton College in New Jersey. Over the span of four years from 2001-05, she helped lead the Ospreys to a 67-43 record while guiding the squad to a New Jersey Athletic Conference Tournament title and appearances at the NCAA Division III Tournament in 2004-05 and to the ECAC Championships during the 2002-03 season.
Carey graduated from Mount St. Mary's with a B.A. in Rhetoric and Communications. She was a three-year letterwinner with the Mountaineers from 1997-00, posting 156 points, 64 rebounds, 23 steals and 91 assists in her career. As a walk-on and eventual full-scholarship athlete, Carey helped lead the Mountaineers to a pair of 20-win seasons, including a Northeast Conference regular-season title during the 1998-99 campaign.
Mike Roux joins the UNH women's basketball staff after serving this past season as an assistant coach with the women's basketball program at Holy Cross. He joined the Crusaders after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Southern New Hampshire University, where he helped lead the Penmen to an overall record of 18-11 during the 2008-09 campaign.
"Mike is a tremendous addition to our staff," said Magarity. "His ties to New Hampshire and the New England area mesh perfectly with our goal of recruiting, coaching and mentoring student-athletes at UNH."
Prior to coaching at SNHU, Roux spent two seasons as an assistant coach for the Assumption College women's basketball team. While at Assumption, Roux assisted with recruiting, scouting and alumni relations.
From 2003-05 Roux was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for the men's basketball team at Nichols College, and during the 2002-03 season he was an assistant coach for the boy's basketball team at the Bromfield School. Roux began his coaching career as the freshman boy's basketball coach at Nashoba Regional High School while an undergraduate student at Assumption.
A 2002 graduate of Assumption, Roux was a member of the soccer team and assisted the women's basketball team as a member of the practice squad. He currently lives in New Hampshire with his wife, Deb, and son, Joshua.
