Zach Otto-Fisher is in his first season as head coach for the Yellowjacket women's basketball team in 2017-18. The Yellowjackets completed another great year finishing 23-5 on the year and winning the UMAC Conference and Conference Tournament to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Last season, Otto-Fisher was an assistant for UW-Superior and Coach Don Mulhern and helped the team to a perfect 16-0 conference record and 23-5 overall record.
Otto-Fisher came to UW-Superior after spending three seasons as the head girls basketball coach at Glencoe-Silver Lake High School in Minnesota.
Under Otto-Fisher's guidance the Panthers enjoyed a resurgence, finishing above the .500 mark each of the last two seasons, including an 8-6 record in Wright County Conference play in 2015-16. It was the first time in 10 years that Glencoe-Silver Lake had back-to-back winning seasons. During the 2014-15 campaign the Panthers earned a berth in the subsection finals, marking the first time since 1997 the team advanced that far in the post-season.
Otto-Fisher helped five of his players at Glencoe-Silver Lake move on to play college basketball, including two that advanced to the NCAA Division I level.
Along with coaching basketball, Otto-Fisher was the head girls soccer coach at Glencoe-Silver Lake the past five years.
Otto-Fisher has been the head coach of the Minnesota Fury, one of the top AAU basketball programs in not only Minnesota, but the entire Upper Midwest for the past four years. He began his basketball coaching career with the Fury's 14U team and has stayed with that group through their 17U season, helping them to a 115-45 record during that span.
