ANN ARBOR, MICH. (AP) - Kim Barnes Arico says there’s no mystery behind her decision to become Michigan’s new coach after a decade building St. John’s into a women’s basketball powerhouse in the Big East.

Barnes Arico debuted Monday in Ann Arbor and was asked why she decided to join the Wolverines in the Big Ten.

She says, “It’s the University of Michigan, for God’s sake.”

That’s the same phrase Brady Hoke used to explain his decision to become the Wolverines’ football coach.

Barnes Arico led St. John’s for 10 seasons and guided the Red Storm to a second-place finish in the Big East this past year, including a victory at Connecticut in February that ended the Huskies’ 99-game home winning streak.

She succeeds Kevin Borseth, who left Michigan to go back to Wisconsin-Green Bay.
