Pueblo native Jubic named CSU-Pueblo assistant women's coach
Jubic replaces Leslie Haywood, who resigned to return to her native Denver.
PUEBLO, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - July 2, 2012) - Pueblo native and former Colorado Christian assistant Janean Jubic has been named the top assistant with the CSU-Pueblo women's basketball program.
Jubic comes to CSU-Pueblo after a two-year stint at Colorado Christian University. While with the Cougars, she helped lead Colorado Christian to the 2012 National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) National Championship as well as coached the program's junior varsity team. A year earlier, while serving as a student assistant, she helped the Cougars reach their first ever NCAA Division II Tournament.
Prior to arriving at CCU, Jubic played for four seasons at UC-Colorado Springs, where she was a three-time Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Academic Honor Roll selection.
"I'm really excited to come home and have the opportunity to coach basketball," Jubic said. "I grew up playing here, so coming back to coach here will be fun and enjoyable."
Jubic said she is also excited to coach under CSU-Pueblo head coach, Kip Drown, and help bring another RMAC Championship to Pueblo.
"I love [Drown's] morals, values and how he chooses to run his program," Jubic said. "I hope I fit in well and continue to make this program better."
Jubic replaces longtime assistant Leslie Haywood, who resigned to return to her native Denver where she will take the same position with Colorado School of Mines.
Haywood had the most continuous longevity in the program aside from trailblazing coach Jessie Banks, having played for the ThunderWolves from 2002-06, then coaching the Pack from 2006 to 2012. As a player, she won one RMAC title and then coached three additional RMAC championship teams.
