Kurt Godlevske, who won a boy's and a girl's state championship in Indiana high school basketball, joined the Butler women's basketball team staff in the spring of 2013.
"Kurt brings a great amount of coaching experience and a highly successful background as he is coming off an undefeated state championship season at Bedford," head coach Beth Couture said. "After my first meeting with Kurt, I knew he would be a great asset to our program. His winning approach, great character and his eager and charismatic demeanor are great additions to Butler women's basketball."
Godlevske joins Couture's staff after winning the IHSAA Class 4A Girl's Basketball State Championship in 2013. He posted a 120-41 record in seven seasons at Bedford North Lawrence High School, including a 28-0 mark in last season's state championship season.
An all-state high school basketball player in L'Anse, Mich., he played collegiately at Northern Michigan University, then started his coaching career at NCAA Division II Lake Superior State, where he posted a 35-19 record in two years. After a few years out of coaching, Godlevske returned as head coach of his alma mater in L'Anse, leading the school to a 40-9 record in two seasons.
Godlevske earned his degree in physical education and health from Northern Michigan University in 1994. He earned a master's degree from University of Indianapolis in 2004 and a principal's license from Oakland City in 2008.
