Holzman Returns to NCAA as VP of Women’s Basketball

Posted: Updated:

Veteran collegiate sports administrator Lynn Holzman has been named NCAA vice president of women’s basketball. She is currently commissioner of the West Coast Conference. Holzman will be making a return to the NCAA national office where she previously spent 16 years. In addition to fulfilling her responsibilities as a conference commissioner since 2014, she has been involved in NCAA governance, serving as a member of the Division I Council and the Division I Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee.

Holzman previously served as NCAA director of academic and membership affairs from 2001 to 2012 and has worked closely with NCAA members and supported the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, the Division I Women’s Basketball Issues Committee and the Committee on Women’s Athletics — among several other working groups and task forces — to support fairness in college sports for schools and student-athletes.

She has served as an advocate for women in college sports throughout her career, including as a former board member and now president-elect for Women Leaders in College Sports (formerly the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators). Holzman also served in sports organizations in California’s Bay Area, including the San Jose Sports Authority board of directors and the Bay Area Women’s Sports Initiative.

She earned her Bachelor of Science degree at Kansas State, where she was captain of the women's basketball team and a three-time Academic All-Big Eight Team member. Holzman also earned a Master of Arts degree from North Carolina and a Master of Business Administration from Purdue. She was awarded the Big Eight Conference’s Postgraduate Scholarship and is recognized as a Distinguished Alumni by North Carolina.

Holzman will serve in the position previously held by Anucha Browne, who left the NCAA in October to become chief strategy and engagement officer at UNICEF USA. Holzman will start in her new role February 1.
