5.24.2013 Mike Lindemann hired as Women's Basketball Coach

The Parkland College Athletic Department is pleased to announce that Mike Lindemann has been named the new Women's Basketball Coach. Lindemann served as an assistant coach to former head coach Karrie Redeker before her departure for Illinois Central College in April. Prior to coming to Parkland, Lindemann was the head coach at Champaign Central High school for 6 years where he compiled a record of (90-57). He also was the varsity boys coach at University High School for 3 years and coached AAU basketball for four years. Mike is currently the Co-Owner of Body 'n Soul Sports and is the Co-Director of the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon, He and his wife Liz have 3 daughters, Laura, Allie, and Rachel.

Lindemann has also selected his two assistants. Former Monticello and Salt Fork Head Coach David Ellars will serve as the Associate Head Coach. Ellars will handle many of the administrative duties and will coordinate summer camps as well as the jun...ior and senior high school summer leagues hosted at Parkland. Current assistant Bill Dobrik will also remain on the staff after serving as an assistant the previous two seasons. Dobrik will be the Cobra Recruiting Coordinator as well as assisting with practices and scouting.

"I am extremely pleased to have Mike as the new Head Coach of the Cobras", said Cobra Athletic Director Rod Lovett. "He has incredible knowledge of the game, is highly respected by his players and peers, and will do an excellent job developing players at Parkland. We pinpointed Mike early on as a potential replacement, but with his busy schedule at Body 'n Sole and with his responsibilities with the Illinois Marathon, it was important for us to get a staff in place to assist him with the job. Retaining Coach Dobrik and adding Coach Ellars was essential in making this work. Losing Karrie was a momentary setback, but I feel getting Mike to replace her will allow us to continue the success the Cobra Women's Basketball program has achieved for the past several years."
