Director of Basketball Operations Jack Eisenmann
Eighth Season


Jack Eisenmann is entering his eighth season as the Director of Women's Basketball Operations at the University of Connecticut.

A native of Norristown, Pa., Eisenmann graduated from St. Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and went on to earn his Master's Degree in Social Sciences from the University of Ottawa in 1979.  He played basketball for St. Mary's during the 1971-1972 season and continued his career at the University of Ottawa from 1976 to 1979.

Upon graduating in 1979, Eisenmann began a 10-year career in the business world that culminated with a position as a vice president of human resources in the health care field.

Prior to joining the UConn staff, he spent 12 seasons as the head coach of the men's basketball program at the University of Ottawa.

During his tenure at the University of Ottawa, the program enjoyed its most successful season in the history of the program since it started competing on the national level. 

In 1993, the team qualified for the Canadian National Championship by winning its first-ever Ontario Provincial Championship with an 88-48 upset over perennial national powerhouse, the University of Western Ontario.  This triumph earned the University of Ottawa a No. 7 ranking in the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union Championship and a first-round meeting with No. 2 ranked University of Winnipeg Wesmen. 

Eisenmann guided Ottawa to an upset of Wesmen and a No. 3 ranking in the final standings of the 1993 CIAU Championship, the highest ranking in the history of the program.
