Mark Ehlen, a longtime veteran of coaching women's basketball, enters into his second season as an assistant coach at Miami. In his first season with Miami, he helped guide the RedHawks to a 21-10 record, including a 14-2 record at Millett Hall. 

Before joining the Miami coaching staff he spent two seasons as an assistant at Cincinnati. Ehlen brings extensive experience to the RedHawks, having previously been the head coach at Xavier (1986-95) and Toledo (1995-08).

"Mark has a wealth of knowledge and experience that he shares with us here at Miami," said head coach Maria Fantanarosa. "He is a positive teacher who brings out the best in his players. His energy and work ethic have immediately contributed to the success of this program. He is a proven winner."

During his 13 seasons at Toledo, Ehlen led the Rockets to four regular-season Mid-American Conference Championships, as well as four MAC Tournament Championships and NCAA appearances. He led them to a 240-149 overall record and a 140-73 mark in MAC play. Four times, he was honored as the MAC Coach of the Year during his tenure. His Toledo teams recorded six 20-win seasons and finished 25th in the final 1999 AP poll.

Prior to his time at Toledo, Ehlen spent nine years guiding the Xavier program. He led the Musketeers to 125 wins during his tenure and the 1992 Midwestern Collegiate Conference regular-season championship. He also led Xavier to the 1993 MCC Tournament Championship and its first NCAA appearance in program history. Fantanarosa was Ehlen's top assistant coach at Xavier for four seasons (1990-94), her first career coaching job.

Known for demanding success from his players both on and off the court, Ehlen has a 100 percent graduation rate for his four-year players and four times has had a team rank in the top-10 in grade point average by the WBCA. He is a two-time WBCA District 4 Coach of the Year and was inducted into the Cincinnati Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002.

Ehlen earned his bachelor's degree in communications education from Ohio State in 1975; he received a master's degree in broadcast communications from Bowling Green in 1979. Ehlen and his wife, Mimi, have a 15-year old daughter, Eliza.
