Mark Huelsman enters his seventh season as an assistant women's basketball coach at Ohio Northern.
Huelsman has been heavily involved in all aspects of the Polar Bear women's basketball program, including post-player development, recruitment, and serving as head coach of the junior varsity team.
He has helped coach the program to four Ohio Athletic Conference Regular Season championships, a conference tournament championship, and three NCAA Division III Tournament appearances, including an Elite 8 berth during the 2016-17 season.
Since Huelsman’s arrival, he has helped develop five First-Team All-OAC post players, including two OAC Players of the Year, two D3Hoops.com All-Americans, and two WBCA Honorable Mention All-American post players.
“Mark has been a vital part of our success over the past six seasons. He has done an outstanding job in recruiting and developing our players,” head coach Michele Durand stated.
Prior to Ohio Northern, Huelsman worked as an assistant coach at fellow OAC institution Wilmington. He graduated from Wittenberg in 2007 where he was a three-time letterwinner for the men's basketball team as well as a member of the 2006 NCAA Division III Tournament runner-up team.
