Connie Yori’s top assistant leaving for Boise State

Nebraska Associate Head Coach Sunny Smallwood is leaving Connie Yori’s staff to take a job at her alma mater of Boise State in a similar role. Smallwood spent nine years including the past six seasons as NU’s associate head coach.

“We want to thank Sunny for her commitment to helping our program climb on the national level over the past nine seasons. We have made six trips to the NCAA Tournament, won two conference titles and advanced to a pair of Sweet 16s during that time, and she was a big part of that,” Yori said. “She has a chance now to help her alma mater at Boise State in a similar way. She started her coaching career at the high school level in Boise, so in a lot of ways she is headed home, and we wish her the best.”

Yori said the search to replace Smallwood on the Husker staff is underway.
