ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan has hired coach Kevin Borseth away from Wisconsin-Green Bay to shore up its struggling women's basketball program.

The hiring was first reported by "The Ann Arbor News."

And Michigan athletics department spokesman Bruce Madej says an official announcement will be made today.

Borseth replaces Cheryl Burnett, who retired last month after four seasons.

The Wolverines were 35-83 overall and 10-54 in the Big Ten on Burnett's watch.

Borseth was 216-62 over nine seasons at Green Bay.

The 52-year-old native of Bessemer coached Michigan Tech from 1987-1998, posting a 225-97 record.
