DeKeyser steps down from Wisconsin’s women’s post

Wisconsin women’s assistant coach Tracey DeKeyser has resigned her position, the school announced Tuesday.

DeKeyser had been with the program since its inception in 1998-99, including serving as the interim head coach in 2009-10 when head coach Mark Johnson was coaching the U.S. women’s Olympic team.

“Stepping down from coaching at Wisconsin was not an easy decision, considering I’ve spent nearly my entire professional career as a Badger hockey coach,” DeKeyser said in a statement. “Although I am looking forward to a change in routine and learning new life skills, I hope to stay connected to the university and the athletic department in some capacity.”

Wisconsin has yet to name a replacement for DeKeyser.
