Julian Assibey
Assistant Coach - 1st Season

Julian Assibey enters his first year as assistant women's basketball and track and field coach this fall.

Assibey, a 2005 graduate of the University with degrees in sports administration and strength and conditioning, returns to Penn after spending the past year and a half as an assistant women's basketball coach at NCAA Division II Metro State (Colo.). He worked primarily with the guard position and aided in all aspects of the program, helping the team to a third-place finish in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in 2008 and a fifth-place finish in 2009.

Assibey has worked double duty recently as, in addition to his time at Metro State, he was also a personal coach for the Colorado Athletic Club since 2006.

Following graduation in 2005, he received a coaching position for the Southern California Basketball Academy. Assibey then utilized his personal and playing skills by spending a year with the Harlem Ambassadors, performing as a show basketball player.

Assibey was a strong multi-sport collegiate athlete at Penn, serving three years as a captain for the basketball team. On the hardwood, he broke the
school's career steals record and placed in the top ten in three-pointers made in a career.

He was a major cog in helping the program return to prominence. His freshman team in 2001-2002 finished 2-30, but by the time he graduated in 2005, the Statesmen had played for back-to-back conference tournament championships and had won 20 games in 2005.

Assibey was the leader of the jumping crew in track as he won three conference titles in the long jump in 2002, 2003, and 2005, claimed a league title in the triple jump in 2003, and qualified for the NAIA National Championships in the triple jump in 2003.

While there, he served as meet director for four meets, including the Simpson Twilight that featured over 1,500 athletes.  He guided five athletes to nationals, including two All-Americans.

His longest tenure came at Defiance College (Ohio) were he was head men's and women's cross country and track and field coach from 1999-2004. Under Stacy's guidance, the school claimed three Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference titles, while he earned HCAC Coach of the Year honors twice for women's track and field and once for women's cross country.

Stacy's first collegiate coaching stint landed him at his alma mater, Wilmington College (Ohio), where he was an assistant coach from 1998-1999.

During his career, Stacy has guided 24 NCAA national qualifiers (nine All-Americans) and five NAIA national qualifiers (two All-Americans).

Stacy did his undergraduate work at Wilmington, graduating in 1991 with a degree in criminal justice and minors in history and political science. He then received his Master's in Education from Defiance in 2003.

A tremendous collegiate athlete at Wilmington, Stacy was an NAIA All-American in football and an NAIA national track qualifier in the decathlon, discus, and 55-meter/60-yard dash.
