IOWA CITY — University of Iowa assistant women’s basketball coach Lacey Goldwire is leaving to become an assistant at Arkansas.

Goldwire served on Lisa Bluder’s staff for the past four seasons. The Hawkeyes qualified for the NCAA tournament twice in Goldwire’s tenure, including a Sweet 16 appearance in 2015.

Before her time at Iowa, Goldwire was a student assistant and graduate assistant at Oklahoma State for four years and an assistant at Morehead State for a year.

Mike Neighbors was hired as Arkansas’ head coach April 2. Goldwire is the lone assistant listed on the Razorbacks’ web page.

Arkansas was 13-17 last season.
