Rachel Folcik
Position: Assistant Coach
Alma Mater: Ferris State
Graduating Year: 2008
Experience: 1st Year

Joining the Miami staff as an assistant coach this season is Rachel Folcik. Folcik comes to the RedHawks after spending the past two seasons on Coach Cleve Wright’s staff at Gannon.

"I am beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to further my coaching career at such a place as Miami University,” said Folcik. “This place is special—the ambiance of the campus is one to be emulated—but more important than this for me are the intangibles. The people, community, relationships, ‘Love and Honor’; these are the things I can’t wait to be a part of."

While with Gannon, Folcik was the team’s recruiting coordinator and camp director. She was responsible for coaching the post players, handled scouting reports on opponents and performed extensive film breakdown.

Prior to her time at Gannon, Folcik worked as a graduate assistant coach at her alma mater Ferris State. She was a four-year letterwinner for the Bulldogs, graduating in 2008. She was a two-time WBCA Division II Honorable Mention All-American, and was named a CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America selection during her senior season in 2008.

"I am so happy that Rachel wanted this challenge,” said Wright. “Her character, loyalty and work ethic are exactly what are needed to help us build the unique culture of Miami Women's Basketball."
