Meet the Coaches

Huskies Head Coach Samantha Hoyt

Sam Hoyt enters her fourth season as head coach of the Michigan Tech women's basketball program. Hoyt and the Huskies ended the 2020-21 season with an overall record of 20-2, 17-1 against conference opponents, winning the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference regular season as well as the Conference Tournament. Hoyt brings a wealth of coaching experience to Tech from both the NCAA Division I and II levels. In her most recent stop at the University of Sioux Falls as the assistant coach, she was involved in all facets of the program. She played an integral role in player development, served as the recruiting coordinator, created scouting reports, ran summer camps, and had responsibilities for film breakdown. Prior to serving as the assistant coach at USF, Hoyt was an assistant coach at NCAA Division I Youngstown State University under former Tech head coach John Barnes. Hoyt helped guide the Penguins to a 21-13 record during the 2015-16 campaign and a spot in the semifinals of the WBI Tournament. In addition, Youngstown State had the third-highest team GPA in NCAA Division I that season. Hoyt also coached at the NCAA Division II level during the 2014-15 season as an assistant at Northwood University in Midland.

Hoyt was a standout player for the Huskies, helping lead the program to the 2011 NCAA Division II National Championship game as well as garnering multiple individual awards, including All-American Honorable Mention honors. Hoyt is Michigan Tech's seventh all-time leading scorer, amassing 1,434 career points during her four-year career which spanned 124 games. She owns the second-highest career free throw percentage in program history at 84.8 percent and is tied for the second-highest single-season free throw percentage at 89.5 percent. Hoyt was a Team Captain, First Team All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection, and a two-time WBCA All-America Honorable Mention honoree following her junior and senior seasons. Hoyt was an excellent student in the classroom, receiving All-GLIAC Academic Excellence honors each of her four seasons. She was a Second Team Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-American as a junior and was named to the First Team at the conclusion of her senior season.

Huskies Assistant Coach Elisa Jurmu

The 2021-22 season marks Elisa Jurmu's fourth as assistant coach of the Michigan Tech women's basketball program. Jurmu spent four seasons with the Huskies as a player where she appeared in 57 games. She helped guide Tech to a 90-25 record during that span which included three GLIAC division championships and two appearances in the NCAA Division II National Tournament.
