Margaret Carey enters her second season as an assistant coach of the UNH women’s basketball program.
Carey, who serves as the program’s Recruiting Coordinator, came 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.
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.
