Just two months after finishing her college playing career, Parise Rossignol is staying with the UMaine women's basketball program as an assistant coach.

Head coach Amy Vachon made the announcement today.

"I am thrilled to announce that Parise Rossignol will be continuing at the University of Maine as an assistant coach next season," Vachon said. "Parise's love for this University and for the state of Maine resonates whenever she talks about her home. I have no doubt the transition from player to coach will be a seamless one for Parise, as her knowledge for the game, her work ethic and most importantly her ability to relate with the players and future Black Bears will be beneficial to our entire program." - UMaine Release

The Van Buren native played in 98 games for the Black Bears. This past season, Rossignol hit on 42% of her three-pointers to lead America East. She also set a school record with eight three-pointers vs UMass Lowell.

"I am so humbled, thankful, and excited for this opportunity to coach at a place that means so much to me and to continue to learn from a coach as knowledgeable and successful as Coach Vachon," Rossignol said. "The women's basketball program at the University of Maine is special, and I'm thrilled for the opportunity to grow as a coach and help add to the program's tradition of excellence." - UMaine Release
