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.

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.
