Following an incredible WNIT Fab 4 run, Bowling Green Women’s Basketball Head Coach Robyn Fralick, Michigan State Athletic Director Alan Haller announced Friday afternoon Fralick will be the sixth women’s basketball coach in that school’s history.

In Fralick’s five years at Bowling Green, she coached the Falcons to a 88-73 record including this year’s 31 wins, tying a program record.

Fralick grew up right near Michigan State in Okemos, Michigan. Haller commented on the excitement within the Michigan State office to be able to bring Fralick back into the community.

“Although she grew up in our community and we couldn’t be more excited to bring her home, it’s important to note that she’s respected nationally. That became evidently clear throughout this process during conversations with individuals throughout the women’s basketball community” said Haller.

Fralick released a statement reflecting on her time here:  “Falcon Faithful, you will always have our hearts. BGSU is so special to me and my family. Thank you for wrapping your arms around us with support and kindness and cheering your hearts out. To the Squad, thank you for giving your best, every day. You were a genuine joy and inspired an entire community with your heart, grit and togetherness.”

BG Director of Athletics and Recreation Derek van der Merwe said a national search for Fralick’s successor will begin immediately.
