Brittany Lange

Brittany Lange compiled an 80-124 record in seven seasons at UNO.

Mavericks women’s basketball coach Brittany Lange’s contract will not be renewed, UNO Athletic Director Trev Alberts announced Monday.

“Brittany has been with us throughout our Division I history, and her leadership during that time was important to our successful reclassification,” Alberts said in a press release. “However, we have reached a point where our women’s basketball team needs to reach a new level of competitiveness, and I felt a coaching change was the best way to accomplish that goal.”

UNO’s season ended Saturday with a 99-40 loss to No. 17 South Dakota in the Summit League tournament. The Mavs finished 7-23 and 2-14 in conference play.

Lange, who joined UNO in 2011 as the director of basketball operations and was an assistant during the 2012-13 season, compiled an 80-124 record in seven seasons as head coach, finishing 31-77 in Summit League play. The team’s best finish came in 2016-17 when it finished 16-15 and fifth in the Summit.

Lange didn’t respond to texts from The World-Herald.

“We appreciate all that Brittany has done to forge a connection between her team, our fans and the Omaha community,” added Alberts. “She has always had a thorough understanding of what it takes to be a successful student-athlete and has done her best to mentor her players accordingly.”
