Current Coaching Staff[edit]

Head Coach Bobbie Kelsey[edit]

Bobbie Kelsey, who, as an assistant coach at Stanford helped lead the Cardinal to the NCAA Final Four in each of the last four seasons, was named the sixth head coach in UW women's basketball history in April 2011.

In her four seasons as an assistant at Stanford, the Cardinal compiled a 137–14 (.907) record, including a 69–3 (.958) mark in Pac-10 conference play, and advanced to the Final Four each year. Stanford's streak of four-straight Final Fours is tied for the second-longest streak in NCAA history. Prior to Kelsey's arrival, Stanford had not advanced to the Final Four since 1997.

In addition to coaching at Stanford under Hall of Fame head coach Tara VanDerveer for the last four seasons, Kelsey was a four-year letterwinner at Stanford from 1992–96. She helped the Cardinal to three Final Four appearances in five years as a player, including the 1992 NCAA championship. Kelsey was a team co-captain in 1995 and 1996, voted the team's Most Inspirational Player in 1992 and 1996, and named the team's most improved player in 1993.

Prior to returning to Stanford, Kelsey spent three seasons at Virginia Tech, helping guide the Hokies to three consecutive postseason appearances, including NCAA Tournament berths in 2005 and 2006.

From 2002 to 2004, Kelsey served as an assistant coach at Western Carolina and worked primarily with the post players while assisting with recruiting and camps. She coached 2002–03 Southern Conference Player of the Year Tiffany Hamm as well as Jennifer Gardner, the league's most accurate shooter that same year, making over 51 percent of her shots.

Kelsey spent the 2000–02 seasons as the top assistant and recruiting coordinator at Evansville. Prior to her stint with the Aces, she was an assistant coach at Florida for two seasons where she was responsible for film exchange, scouting and coaching the posts. Kelsey helped the Lady Gators to back-to-back postseason appearances, including an NCAA Tournament trip in 1999 and a trip to the WNIT championship game vs. Wisconsin in 2000.

Prior to her tenure at Florida, Kelsey served as a practice player for the Atlanta Glory of the American Basketball League for one year and as an assistant at Boise State in 1996–97.

Kelsey graduated from Stanford in 1996 with a bachelor's degree in communications. She earned her master's degree from Duquesne University from the School of Leadership and Professional Advancement in Sports Leadership.

Assistant Coach Jayme Callahan[edit]

Jayme Callahan has joined the University of Wisconsin women's basketball staff and will take over her duties as the Badgers' recruiting coordinator.

"We have hit an absolute home run with the addition of Jayme to our coaching staff," says Kelsey. "It is an extremely difficult task to find and attract the caliber of personality and coaching ability that Jayme possesses so we are truly blessed that she decided to join the Badgers.

"Jayme brings a wealth of experience to our staff not only as an assistant coach at the BCS level but also as a former head coach at the high school and Division III level. Her dedication to player development, teaching the game and recruiting the best players will no doubt support our goal of taking this program to a national level. Jayme will do a fantastic job."

Callahan comes to Wisconsin after serving as an assistant coach at Clemson University for one season. The St. Louis native also served as the recruiting coordinator and assistant coach at La Salle University in 2010–11. She signed two top-100 players and four McDonald's All-America nominees while with the Explorers.

"I'm so excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Wisconsin's women's basketball program," says Callahan. "When I came on my visit, I quickly fell in love with the people and the energy. The university has so much pride and it is in a beautiful city.

"After speaking with Bobbie about her vision of the program, her enthusiasm is contagious. She and her staff have the program headed in a great direction and I am excited to help take it to the next level. It is a tremendous opportunity to work in the Big Ten Conference and with this awesome staff."

Callahan also spent two seasons at Southeast Missouri as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator from 2008–10 and was also a head coach at Division III Webster University for two seasons.

Callahan's other coaching stops have included one year as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Missouri-St. Louis (2005–06) and three seasons as a head coach at two prep programs. In her only season at Putnam County High (Unionville, Mo.) she was named Tri Rivers Conference and District Coach of the Year (2002–03) and she was at Trinity Catholic High School (St. Louis) for two years (2003–05).

Callahan earned a degree in health promotion and wellness in 2002 from Missouri Southern State (Joplin, Mo.), where she started at point guard all four years. She completed her career atop the Lions' all-time career steals list with 225 and games started with 107, starting every game since her freshman season.
