Former UW-Green Bay and St. Norbert College men’s basketball coach Mike Heideman died Saturday at the age of 70, losing a battle with cancer.
Heideman served as head coach of the Phoenix for seven seasons, posting a 110-95 overall record. He posted 20 or more wins in two of those seasons.
Heideman was fired after going 9-21 in 2001-’02, his third straight losing season. Prior to that, Heideman had never finished below .500 in any of his first four years.
Heideman led the Green Knights to the Division 3 Sweet 16 in 1984.
