[March 20, 2014]  The Lincoln Christian University Athletic Department has announced the hiring of LCU alumnus Donnie Bowman as the new women's basketball head coach.

Donnie Bowman has been an assistant coach for 12 seasons, assisting LCU Hall of Famer Nancy Siddens from 1997 to 1999 and Amanda Bowman, also a Hall of Famer, in 2001-2009 and 2011-2014. As an assistant coach, Donnie made three trips to the NCCAA national tournament and most recently went to the regional tournament with the second-seed team on a winning record of 13-9. In addition to assistant coaching at the college level, Bowman brings head coaching experience at the high school and junior high level, leading the Illini Central girls of Mason City from 2004 to 2011.

Bowman, who had a successful basketball career with LCU for three years as a player, is a graduate of LCU and Illinois State University and is a U.S. Navy veteran. He currently teaches history at Illini Central High School.

"Donnie has been around the game for a long time, as both a player and a coach," said Mac Ingmire, LCU athletic director. "He knows the X's and O's as well as anybody. He'll fit in great with our current coaching staff and will bring some exciting and fresh ideas to LCU's Athletic Department."
