Hot Seat: Coach Nancy Winstel
Women's basketball coach picks up 400th win Winstel keeps winning Hot seat with Nancy Winstel Women's basketball Coach Nancy Winstel's office is small, but somehow spacious. She makes the most of the room that the university gave her. It's what she's been doing her whole life. She is at her best when she gives what she can and makes the most of her opportunities. The Campbell County native sat down with The Northerner for an interview last week and she had some very pointed things to say. She wants people to know about her greatest achievement: creating teamwork. "You're not going to see prima donnas on the floor who don't pass the ball," she said. Winstel has found that out. Although, she is not too shy to give her players the tough love they need to be aggressive and motivated. Coach Winstel was born in northern Kentucky and raised in both Newport, KY and Fort Thomas, KY. Aside from a three-year coaching stint at Midway College, she has spent her entire life in Northern Kentucky. She's not about to leave, either. "I've had opportunities to leave and I have chosen not to. This is my home. To have the opportunity to coach at a college that you went to is very special," Winstel said. NKU has a special place in Winstel's heart. She chose to attend college at NKU, and it came with a price. She feels as if she owes the university her service for being the school that she could afford to attend and was close to home. "If it wasn't for NKU, I probably would have never gone to college," she said. "If I was going to college, I was going to have to pay for it myself. When I got out of high school, NKU was just beginning." Winstel decided to enroll as a part time student to get a feel for things. She knew NKU was where she would be for a very long time. After graduating with a degree in physical education from NKU, Winstel earned her master's degree from Indiana University. Her head coaching career began at Midway College before she returned to coach at NKU in 1981. "There are days when I drive in to work and I scan the (area) and I think to myself, 'Wow.' I work here. I do this. I feel very blessed to do what I do, where I want to do it," Winstel said. NKU means a lot to Winstel. She has been at the university for 29 years. She has earned the right to speak her mind about a multitude of subjects, including school spirit. Winstel is very adamant when talking about her beloved university. It doesn't matter to her that the teams are Division II. "I think that what a lot of people don't realize is that there are Division II schools that could beat a lot of Division I schools." Winstel also challenges the student body to come watch the team as they march through the season. "If you love the game, if you're from Kentucky and you truly love the game of basketball, and you come to one of our games, and you don't get excited, then you don't truly love the game," Winstel said. "It's not just the women either. Come and watch the men. You'll get excited." It's obvious that Winstel's ability to coach women's basketball at NKU has brought her to this point. She won't stop until the entire university is united as one team.


Hot Seat: Coach Nancy Winstel
As Nancy Winstel readies herself and her team for the 2003-2004 season, she will be preparing for her 21st season at the helm of the women's basketball team. In her 20 years on the job, Winstel has successfully built one of the premier programs in all of the country. Winstel has finished each and every season with a winning record, compiling a career mark of 439 wins to 140 losses. She has led her teams to 14 NCAA tournament appearances, four national semifinal appearances and one national championship. Winstel has been able to do all of this in what she calls her dream job. "When I got this job, it was sort of like I was living in a dream world," said Winstel. "I'm lucky enough that I found a career and a job that I really enjoy." Winstel, who was a member of the first women's basketball team at NKU, graduated in 1977 and began her coaching career in 1979 at Midway College. After three years at Midway, Winstel felt like she needed to come home. She first found a home at NKU, not as a head basketball coach, but as the head softball coach. Winstel was also offered the job as assistant women's basketball coach and assistant volleyball coach. "I jumped at the opportunity," said Winstel. "I happened to be very lucky with the situation I was given." Winstel spent just two seasons as the softball coach when the spot as head women's basketball coach opened up. Winstel applied for the job and the rest is history. "I have to attribute a lot of the success that I have had to my players and my assistant coaches," said Winstel. "I've been lucky to have a lot of girls who want to work hard, the players really do make the coach." To stay on top, Winstel relies on her competitiveness and intensity. "I think of myself as a pretty intense person," Winstel said. "There may be days where I'm not really that motivated but, as a coach, you have to appear intense and motivated, no matter what." You would have to think that this intensity and motivation is what leads to the wins. The wins are what gets Winstel noticed. She has had other offers from bigger schools, but says that she is perfectly fine with staying pat and trying to keep the NKU tradition alive. "It would take a whole lot to get me to leave this area," said Winstel. "I have had a few offers to leave and coach elsewhere, but when push comes to shove, it always ends up that I don't want to leave NKU." Winstel will continue to pace the sidelines this season and, as long as she is there, you can count on two things happening: The Norse will finish with a winning record, and Winstel will continue to stay motivated and intense. "I love my job," said Winstel. "I continue to learn something new from every player I coach. If my players learned as much from me as I learned from them, they are very fortunate." Winstel will begin her 21st coaching campaign in Florida late in November. She will be there coaching, teaching and learning. You can also count on her getting a few wins along the way.

"I don't think Nicole called it off the glass, by the way," Norse head coach Nancy Winstel said.To Winstel, that seemed somewhat appropriate.NKU, with five returning starters and 11 returning letterwinners from last season's 27-5 Great Lakes Valley Conference tournament champion, is a preseason big shot among NCAA Division II bullies.Conference coaches agree.They selected the Norse the preseason favorite in the rough-and-tumble GLVC East Division in preseason balloting, giving NKU six first-place votes and a conference-best 36 voting points.Winstel says all of it means nothing."We haven't won a game yet, but I think it's fair to say expectations are high for us," Winstel said.Winstel, who began her college coaching career at Midway, will be looking for her 500th win at NKU that night.

MIDLAND, Mich. -- It was only a matter of time before Northern Kentucky University's Nancy Winstel earned her 500th coaching victory, but a road win on New Year's Eve made the milestone even more special Friday as the Norse closed out 2004 in style. NKU gave Winstel her 500th victory by posting a 57-51 win over Northwood (Mich.) in the Great Lakes Valley Conference/Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Classic.In 25 years as a college head coach at both Midway (Ky.) and NKU, Winstel owns a 500-199 record. "To get it on the road is big, and I'm really happy for our players," said Winstel, whose team improved to 5-7."We have been struggling a bit, but our players stepped up and beat a pretty good team. "I never thought too much about 500 wins, but we've had a lot of great players in our program over the years, and that's what makes it special." Winstel is now 461-158 in 22 years at NKU.She also picked up 39 victories in three seasons as the head coach at Midway. "I told our players at halftime that Northwood had taken our best shot, and they would come out ready in the second half," Winstel said. "We decided to play tougher defense down the stretch, and we mixed in some full-court pressure, zone and man-to-man in this game," Winstel said.

Winstel stuck on 498 wins NKU head coach Nancy Winstel needed two wins to reach 500 in her career.Winstel couldn't give a hooey, refusing to comment on the subject when asked if 500 wins was the farthest thing from her mind. "I will honestly tell you I'm focused on Fort Valley State right now," Winstel said immediately after addressing her team. That was only partially true.Winstel also was in a hurry to find her coat and head off to the hospital.Winstel, 498-198 in her 25-year college coaching career, can get win No. 500 with a victory today against 5-2 Fort Valley State and a win in NKU's next game, a Dec. 30 contest vs.Ferris State, which begins a four-game road swing. If the Norse play the way they did while winning three straight in a rebound from an 0-5 start, Winstel probably will earn her milestone win away from Regents Hall.If NKU plays like it did in the second half Monday, when it committed 15 turnovers, the next home game Jan. 13 against Bellarmine may take on added significance. Winstel's 498 victories rank sixth all-time among NCAA Division II head coaches.Winstel, who began her coaching career during a three-year stint at Midway College, is 459-157 at NKU. I'm worried about right now," Winstel said.
