Official release from the University of Oregon
EUGENE, Ore. – University of Oregon head men's basketball coach Dana Altman has announced the addition of Michael Lee as assistant director of basketball operations. Lee comes to UO from Gardner-Webb University where he was an assistant coach for the last two seasons.
Prior to Gardner-Webb, Lee was a graduate student manager at the University of Kansas for the 2007-08 season. He played at KU from 2002-05 before becoming a member of the Jayhawks' national championship staff in 2008.
Lee has been a part of three Final Four teams, two as a player (2002, 2003) and one on KU's staff (2008). As a player, he appeared in 118 career games and was an Academic All-Big 12 Second Team selection his senior season.
Lee played professional basketball from 2005-07, including stints with the Harlem Globetrotters, Entente Orleans in Orleans, France, the IBL's Vancouver (Wash.) Volcanoes and the USBL's Kansas Cagerz in Salina, Kan. Lee's brief postgraduate basketball career ended when nerve damage in his right shoulder forced him to stop playing competitively.
The Portland, Ore., native graduated from Kansas with a bachelor's degree in sociology in 2005.
Lee joins assistant coach Brian Fish and director of basketball operations Josh Jamieson as members of Altman's staff.
