Greensboro College Women’s Basketball Coach leaving for DII Barry University in Miami, Florida

Greensboro, NC – The Greensboro College Athletic Department has announced the departure of Hall of Famer and Head Women’s Basketball Coach Heather Macy. After three years at the helm of the Pride Program, Macy has accepted the Head Coaching position at Division II Barry University in Miami, FL.

“Coach Macy is a great credit to Greensboro College as a student athlete, outstanding coach and consummate professional”, said Greensboro College President Dr. Lawrence Czarda. “While we will miss her on campus, we know that she will continue to be successful in all she does”.

In her three years at her Alma Mater, Macy, who was named the 2022-2023 USA South Coach of the Year, led Greensboro back to the top of the USA South Athletic Conference. This past season, she guided her team to a 26-3 overall record, while going undefeated in the conference at 18-0. The Pride went on to win both the regular season and tournament championships, while qualifying for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2015. Not counting the COVID-altered 2020-21 campaign, Greensboro, and their 18-0 USA South record, are the first to go unbeaten through a Conference schedule since Christopher Newport also posted an 18-0 record during the 2009-10 season. The 18 League wins tie the program record for most in a single-season.

“It was an honor to come back and serve at my alma mater”, said Coach Macy. “I’m so proud of the accomplishments of each player and the TEAM. I’m certain that the foundation of success will be sustained for decades to come”.

Overall, Macy complied a record of 57-16 during her time on College Hill and has won a total of 333 career games. She has mentored six USA South All-Conference selections and two Players of the Year, and this past season she had two players selected to the NCAA All-Region team.

“As an alumna of Greensboro College we are so very proud of Heather’s career as a basketball coach, author, public speaker, and all-around educator”, said Director of Athletics Kim Strable. “She continues to set high performance standards for herself and players and we’re confident her talents will lead to a successful career at Barry University. Wishing her nothing but the best”.

A national search for Coach Macy’s replacement will begin immediately.
