Carol Simon Carol Simon Head Coach 781-736-3646

Carol Simon returns this year for her 27th season at the helm of the Brandeis University Judges women’s basketball team. Her success with the women’s basketball program has garnered her the designation as one of the most respected Division III coaches in New England. She has earned University Athletic Association Coaching Staff of the Year honors in 1991-92 and 2004-05 and in 2010 was inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame.

From her inaugural head coaching season back in 1987, Simon has led Brandeis to three New England Women’s Eight tournament titles, three New Eight regular season crowns and three berths in the ECAC Division III New England tournament, including back-to-back titles in 2004 and 2005, and four straight appearances in the NCAA Division III tournament from 2006 through 2009. The 2008-09 campaign included the team's historic run to the Elite Eight, when they earned the right to host the first two rounds of the tournament before advancing to the sectionals. They finished the season ranked No. 11 in the nation in Division III in the USA Today/ESPN poll and 13th in the d3hoops.com poll.

In her 26-year tenure, Simon has recorded 368 wins, including a 171-88 record over the past nine campaigns, a .660 winning percentage. She notched her 350th career victory in the first game of the 2011-12 season against WPI. As the winningest coach in Brandeis history, she has coached nine 1,000-point scorers, four All-Americans and two UAA Players of the Year. Among her recent graduates are Caitlin Malcolm '07, who became the first Brandeis women's basketball graduate to sign a professional contract when she joined Killester in the Irish League in September 2007; Jaime Capra '08, the 2008 UAA Co-Player of the Year; and most recently, Jessica Chapin '10, the first player named a WBCA first-team All-American in program history.

Simon has repeatedly proven her successes as a talented recruiter, program-builder, game strategist and inspirational leader. Named the New Eight coach of the year in both the 1991-92 and 1992-93 seasons, as well as part of the UAA Coaching Staff of the Year in 1991-92 and 2004-05. Her dedication to the program is seen through her intense personal, competitive drive to make the Brandeis Women’s Basketball team one of the most dominant in the country.

A native of Middlebury, Connecticut, Simon is a 1985 graduate of Colby College where she majored in Administrative Science. She was a member of Colby’s ECAC Division III women’s basketball championship teams in 1984 and 1985. A three-sport athlete, she captained the team her senior year, while also serving as captain of the soccer and softball teams. Perhaps a highlight to her personal athletic career, Simon represented the United States in the 1981 World Maccabiah Games. In 2003, Simon earned her Master’s degree in Management from Brandeis’s Heller School.
