Former player Greg Surmacz is returning to the Lancer men’s basketball team in a new role, as an assistant to head coach Chris Cheng.
During his varsity career, Surmacz was a two-time all-Canadian and won the Olympic Shield as the University of Windsor’s top male athlete. He followed that with 12 years playing professionally in Europe and North America.
He will resume undergraduate studies to complete his degree in sport management.
Cheng calls Surmacz “one of the greats” in the program’s history.
“Greg’s return speaks volumes to his time as a Lancer and his devotion to the program,” says Cheng. “His return will not only benefit our current Lancers but future ones as well.”
