"We are excited to have Glenn join the Akron women's basketball family," Kest said. "His head coaching experience at the junior college level, assistant coaching experience at the Division I level, and familiarity with the Mid-American Conference will be assets for our program. Glenn is a coach with lots of passion, energy and drive. I am certain our student-athletes will enjoy working with Glenn immensely."
