Pacific Women's Hoops Names Miranda Forry Director of Basketball Operations
STOCKTON, Calif. - Pacific women's basketball head coach Lynne Roberts named Miranda Forry the Tigers Director of Basketball Operations Thursday. Forry, a four-year letter-winner and team captain at UC Irvine, joins Pacific from the Academy of Art in San Francisco.
"Miranda Forry is a fantastic addition to our coaching staff," Roberts said. "She comes with excellent experience as a NCAA Division II first assistant, where she was involved in all aspects of being an NCAA level assistant coach. Miranda also was a former Big West basketball player, having played and graduated from UC Irvine. Both of those past experiences add significant value to her position here. She brings an instant enthusiasm to the program and we feel fortunate to have her here in our Pacific Tiger family."
Forry played four seasons in the Big West at UC Irvine from 2004-2008, averaging 7.4 points per game and 4.4 rebounds per game her senior season as Anteaters team captain. She averaged 7.5 points and 4.1 rebounds as a junior, and appeared in over 100 games in her career.
Following her playing career, she was an assistant coach for the girls junior varsity basketball team at San Marin High School. She also served as head coach of the Strictly Hoops AAU team in Marin.
In June of 2009, Forry was named assistant coach for the women's basketball team at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, helping the team to a fourth place finish in the Pacific West Conference in 2010-11.
She also served as a Camp Coach and Assistant to the Camp Director for the Tara Hoops Summer.
"I'm thrilled and grateful to become a member of Coach Roberts' staff, Pacific Athletics, and the University as a whole," Forry said. "I believe in Coach Roberts' philosophy and the direction of this program. I cannot wait to learn from her and my peers while contributing to building Pacific into the program we know it will be. Pacific is an amazing family and I'm extremely proud to be a part of it."
Forry replaces former Director of Basketball Operations Jenn Wassom, who left the program to take an assist coaching position under former Pacific coach Sherri Murrell at Portland State.
