NDSU, Walseth Part Ways


The NDSU Athletic Department and head women’s basketball coach Maren Walseth have mutually parted ways. 

The announcement was made Monday morning by athletic direct Matt Larsen.

Walseth had a 40-106 record in five seasons with the Bison, including a 19-59 record in The Summit League.

She led the Bison to an 11-18 record and sixth-place finish as a rookie head coach in 2014-15 after spending seven years as an assistant coach at Penn State and three years at Navy.

The Bison finished 7-22 this year and placed seventh in the league for the third straight season.  

Larsen said a national search will begin immediately for a new head coach.
