Position:
Senior Associate AD/Senior Woman Administrator


DeJuena Chizer serves as the University of Houston Athletics Department's Senior Associate Athletics Director and Senior Woman Administrator.

In that role, Chizer supervises each of Houston's 10 women's sports, serves on the athletics senior staff and shares in the overall governance of the athletics department. She also serves as the department's senior women's administrative liaison to the American Athletic Conference office.

Chizer moved into her current position after serving for eight seasons as a women's basketball assistant coach at Houston. During her stint on the sidelines, she helped lead the Cougars to nearly 150 wins and four appearances in the postseason, including back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances in 2004 and 2005 and consecutive berths in the WNIT in 2000 and 2001.

Before entering the coaching ranks, Chizer was a standout player for the Cougars from 1983-87, when she earned All-Southwest Conference First Team honors in 1987 and helped Houston earn the first national Top-20 ranking in program history. She remains ranked on Houston's all-time career lists in points scored, games played, assists, assists per game, steals, free throws made and free throw attempts.

Chizer has also been instrumental in the two biggest upsets in program history, leading the Cougars with 16 points in Houton's shocking win over No. 3 Louisiana Tech in 1985, while serving as assistant coach in the team's victory over the ninth-ranked Lady Techsters in 2000.

Before returning to Houston in 2000, Chizer served nine years as the head volleyball coach and assistant basketball mentor at Thomas Jefferson High School (TJHS) in Port Arthur, Texas.

A member of the Texas High School Coaches Association and the Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA), Chizer successfully led the Lady Yellow Jackets into the UIL Playoffs from 1991-93 and 1996-99. She was recognized for her basketball accomplishments in the Museum of the Gulf Coast in 1994 and was honored by the TJHS Yellow Jacket Alumni at the Annual Crying Towel Dinner in August of 1994.

Prior to joining TJHS, Chizer played professionally for four years in Europe and three seasons with the Houston Flames, a semi-professional and AAU team. She was named the AAU MVP and a was member of the AAU National Championship Team in 1991.

Chizer received a bachelor's of science degree in kinesiology from Houston in 1990 and a provisional all levels physical education certificate in 1991.
