Former University of Houston standout DeJuena Chizer begins her eighth season as assistant coach with her alma mater.

In her role with the program, Chizer is involved in the day-to-day operations, also serving as the players' liaison with the coaching staff. She also manages the team's budget, coordinates travel and oversees the squad's academic program.

On August 23, 2007, Chizer was named the department's Senior Women Administrator, replacing longtime staff member Diane Hall, who retired after serving UH for more than 20 years. In that role, she oversees, manages and maintains the nine women's sports at the University of Houston.

"DeJuena Chizer will be a real asset to our senior staff as senior woman administrator," athletic director Dave Maggard said. "DeJuena has extensive experience as a student-athlete in our program, having been an outstanding performer on our women's basketball team.

"She coached and taught at the high school level for a number of years and has been in our program for the past seven years. She brings a great understanding of our department as well an understanding of our entire university community. We are fortunate to have someone with DeJuena's strength and integrity in our program."

Chizer, a 1990 graduate of UH, played for the Cougars from 1983-87.

Prior to joining the Cougars staff in 2000, Chizer spent nine years as the head volleyball coach and assistant basketball mentor at Thomas Jefferson High School (TJHS) in Port Arthur, Texas.

A member of both the Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) and the Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA), Chizer successfully led the Lady Yellow Jackets into the UIL Playoffs in 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 Yellowjacket Alumni at the Annual Crying Towel Dinner in August, 1994.

Prior to joining TJHS, Chizer spent two seasons playing professional basketball in Europe with Tintoretto in Madrid, Spain from 1989-90, and with Cantanzaroin in Italy from 1990-91. She was the second leading scorer for both teams, averaging 17 points per contest for Cantanzaro and led both teams in assists each season.

In addition, she also played for the Houston Flames, a semi-professional team and part of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), from 1988-91. As the Flames' leading scorer each season, Chizer participated in the Texas AAU All-State in 1990-91 and was subsequently named the AAU Most Valuable Player and leader of both the Flames and the AAU National Championship Team in 1991.

During her collegiate career with the Cougars, Chizer was named first team All-Southwest Conference in 1986-87 after leading UH in scoring with 525 points that season.

In addition, Chizer currently ranks on the Cougars' all-time lists in games played, assists, assists per game, steals, free throws made and free throw attempts.

Chizer received a bachelor's of science degree in kinesiology from Houston in 1990 and a provisional all-levels physical education certificate in 1991. She and her husband, Derrick, live in Pearland, Texas, with their two daughters; Kasei, (13), and Kaila, (11).
