Addie Micir has been promoted to head coach of the women’s basketball program, as longtime coach Sue Troyan transitions to a senior leadership role within the athletic department.
Micir had been the program’s associate head coach. The transition marks the first time in 32 years that Troyan is not a head coach at Lehigh.
“There are times in your life when you know you are ready for change, and when you know the program is ready for change,” Troyan said. “This is one of those moments. It’s the right time for me, given an opportunity to make a broader impact at Lehigh, and it’s the right time for the program knowing that we have the right person within our program to step in and continue to move it forward. Addie is the right person at the right time.”
Micir, who became the eighth head coach in program history, has spent the last three seasons as associate head coach at Lehigh. Prior to joining the Mountain Hawks, Micir spent one year as an assistant coach at Princeton, her alma mater. That year, the Tigers were the Ivy League’s regular season and tournament champions. Before returning to Princeton, she was an assistant coach at Dartmouth, where she earned her master’s degree in liberal studies, for five years.
