Columbia Athletics announced Monday that Megan Griffith has been hired as Columbia’s next women’s basketball coach.
Griffith was an assistant at Princeton for the past four seasons and also served as Princeton’s director of basketball operations from 2010-12. The Tigers went 54-7 in that span.
Griffith succeeds Sheila Roux, who coached the 2015-16 season as an interim coach after Stephanie Glance stepped down in September 2015 to become the Executive Director of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
Griffith was captain of the Lions for three seasons and earned All-Ivy League honors in both 2006 and 2007.
