Mennig to coach at Arizona State University for one season

Head Coach Chris Mennig will be taking a one year professional leave of absence to go back to the college ranks as a women’s basketball assistant coach at Arizona State University.  Mennig starts his duties in August 2011 and is contracted until March 31, 2012 at which time he will return to STM program and his USJN/Blue Star Basketball duties.

Coach Jason Schreder will assume the head coaching role for the 2011-12 season with assistants – Scott DeWitt, Kate Melby, Kevin Sullivan.  Also additions to that staff include:  Braden Heil (former NAIA asst. coach & U. of I manager while Mennig was at Illinois) as well as past all-conference standout Brittany Einck ’10.

Arizona State will play AT DePaul Univ. in Chicago this season on December 16th – Plans will be made for a ‘road trip’ to go and see Coach Mennig when he returns to Illinois this winter.

Arizona State (Pac-12 conference) was 20-13 last year and in the NCAA tournament (been to the tourn. 6 of past 7 years) – Their head coach Charlie Turner-Thorne is the WBCA (Women’s Basketball Coaches Assoc.) President and is taking a 9-month leave of absence.  She & interim head coach Joseph Anders asked Coach Mennig to join her staff and assist for this season while she takes some time for herself & her family.  Mennig stated, “When your governing body president comes and asks you to help out her program – How do you say “No”?  The opportunity to work with and learn from a Top 25 program for a season is truly humbling, but to be afforded the ability to then return to the team and community that I call ‘home’, is a life journey that is truly unique.”
