Glendale - After serving for five years as varsity assistant, Rick DeKeyser will now assume the reins as Nicolet girls basketball head coach.
DeKeyser's selection was formally approved by the Nicolet School Board on Monday.
"He's the guy who will hopefully keep things going," Nicolet Athletic Director Kirk Krychowiak said. "He was named acting coach soon after Corey (Wolf) resigned this spring.
"We're very glad he stepped up. He's earned the job and we're very glad to have him out there."
Krychowiak said a total of 18 applications were received with five interviews being conducted. Both the Personnel Committee and Krychowiak recommended DeKeyser's selection.
DeKeyser takes over for Wolf, who resigned to spend more time with her family after nine successful seasons. DeKeyser was part of the last five years of that run, which included four North Shore Conference titles in a row and the WIAA State Division 1 state championship in 2011.
