Megan Osmer
Position: Director of Basketball Operations
Experience: 2 Years

Megan Osmer begins her second season as director of basketball operations. She was on board for the 2011-12 season where UW won 20 games for the first time since 2002-03 and advanced all the way to the quarterfinals of the WNIT.

A native of nearby Bellevue, Wash., Osmer is back in the Pacific Northwest to help administrate a program she grew up rooting for. Osmer is responsible for a variety of roles as the team's DOBO, from handling travel logistics to assisting with the team's budget, community service and on-campus recruiting.

Before coming to Washington, Osmer spent three seasons as an assistant coach with San Jose State. With the Spartans, Osmer worked with the post players, managed and coordinated academic goals while also assisting with recruiting.

As a former assistant, Osmer brings an additional set of skills to the administrative position. That sold Huskies coach Kevin McGuff and his staff when they were looking to make a hire.

"We're really excited to bring Megan on board," McGuff said. "She's just an outstanding person, and her level of organization and attention-to-detail is impressive. She brings a diverse set of experiences to the position that will serve us well here at Washington."

Osmer played prep basketball at Bellevue High School. She then played one season at Michigan State before transferring to D-II Lynn University. In three seasons at the Boca Raton-based school, Osmer established herself as an effective interior presence, and still ranks in the top five in both blocks and rebounding. During her senior season, she led the Sunshine State Conference in rebounding and was the Fighting Knights Team MVP.

Following her 2006 graduation from Lynn with a degree in communications/broadcasting, Osmer added international basketball to her resume. She played with the Manchester Mystics in the United Kingdom for two seasons. While with the club, she also ran coaching sessions for local boys and girls and was an assistant coach for their U16 team. Osmer also worked with the U-20 Great Britain team as a team manager/assistant coach at the European Championships in Ohrid, Macedonia.

But Seattle was always home. During breaks at school, Osmer returned to the Pacific Northwest to spend time with family and friends. In the summer of 2004, she worked with the Seattle Storm's marketing department, as well as various basketball camps in the Puget Sound. Additionally, Osmer interned with 950 KJR-AM, the Seattle Sonics and assisted with the Huskies men's and women's basketball camps.
