Ole Miss women’s basketball head coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin announced the addition of Dana Rieger to her staff on Wednesday. Rieger will serve as the director of operations.
Rieger has nearly two decades of experience working in the administrative ranks of collegiate and professional athletics, most recently serving as the director of operations at the University of Cincinnati.
“Dana is exactly the type of person I need on staff to keep everything running smoothly,” McPhee-McCuin said. “She is experienced, organized and extremely competent. She has made a significant impact on me already in her short time here, and there is no doubt in my mind that she will be a positive impact to the program as a whole.”
Throughout her career, Rieger has accumulated experience in coaching, sales, marketing, development, alumni relations, compliance, event planning and administrative duties. She came to Cincinnati after four seasons at UConn, first as an assistant director of development (2005-2007) and then as the executive assistant of the director of athletics (2007-2009).
Prior to UConn, Rieger spent a season at the University of Hartford as assistant athletics director for external relations, where she was responsible for sponsorships, ticket sales and licensing.
Rieger received an associate’s degree from Concordia College in 1992, a bachelor’s from Albion College in 1994, and her master’s from Western Michigan in 1995.
