North Alabama names Tiber to replace Fowler as head basketball coach
FLORENCE, Ala. -- Former West Liberty standout Missy Tiber was introduced Tuesday as the new head coach at North Alabama.
A native of Bellaire, Ohio, Tiber began her collegiate coaching career in 1994 as an assistant to current WLU head man Lynn Ullom after wrapping up a stellar playing career with the Hilltoppers.
During her six seasons as a West Liberty assistant, Tiber helped guide the Black and Gold to three West Virginia Conference titles, four WVIAC tournament championships and four Division II tournament berths.
Tiber, who comes to UNA following a four-year stint at DI Southern Illinois, has compiled a 186-156 (.544) record in 12 seasons as a collegiate head coach. She was a combined 167-70 (.705) in eight seasons at DII Belmont Abbey and Tusculum.
Tiber replaces former North Alabama coach Terry Fowler, who was recently hired as head coach at DI South Alabama. Fowler was 115-97 (.542) with a pair of DII tournament bids during his seven years at UNA.
