    Jerro chronicles her visit with video updates

    Jerro finished her third season with the Flames in 2013-14. During the 2013-14 season, Jerro helped lead the Flames to a program-record 26 wins, the first postseason championship (WBI) in program history and the nation's largest turnaround. UIC collected 17 more wins (26-9) than the entire 2012-13 campaign (9-21), which was the largest win differential amongst 347 programs nationwide.

    In her first season with the Flames in 2011-12, Jerro helped guide the squad to an 18-13 overall record. Eighteen wins ranks as the second-most wins in school history.

    Prior to UIC, Jerro served as an assistant coach and lead recruiter for the New Jersey Institute of Technology and before that she spent one season on the bench at West Los Angeles College in California. From 2002-08, Jerro served as an assistant coach and the recruiting coordinator on Regina Miller's staff at UNLV. During those six seasons, the Lady Rebels made four postseason appearances including a runner-up finish in the 2004 WNIT.

    Before joining Miller in Las Vegas, Jerro spent four years at California State University-Northridge, including three as the head coach of the Matadors from 1998-2001. In 1999, Jerro's squad captured the Big Sky Conference championship and the first NCAA tournament appearance in school history. The San Francisco native was tabbed as the Big Sky Coach of the Year in 1999, as well.

    Jerro began her coaching career as an assistant at the University of Houston from 1993-1995 following a successful playing career at Arizona State University. She was a two-time letterwinner and team captain for the Sun Devils and in 1992, Jerro was named a Pac-10 Conference All-Star as she helped lead her team into the NCAA tournament. Jerro graduated from Arizona State in 1993 with a degree in business marketing.

    "Frozena is a talented recruiter and outstanding at developing players at the guard position," said Miller. "I know from personal experience that her work ethic and basketball knowledge are second to none."
