New Mexico hires Mike Bradbury to lead women’s team

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The University of New Mexico has hired Mike Bradbury to take the helm of the women’s basketball program.

The school made the announcement Wednesday, saying a news conference would be held Thursday afternoon.

Bradbury replaces Yvonne Sanchez, who was fired in mid-March after five seasons as head coach.

A protege of the school’s most winningest coach, Don Flanagan, Sanchez joined the program in 2000. She was hired to replace the retiring Flanagan following a national search.

Bradbury has coached the women’s team at Wright State in Ohio since 2010. He was named the Horizon League Coach of the Year for 2014-15 and led the team to a 25-9 finish this season.

He also led Morehead State for three seasons and coached as an assistant at Xavier and Cincinnati.
