Nebraska Coach Connie Yori announced on Tuesday that Dayna Finch has been hired as an assistant women’s basketball coach for the Huskers.
Finch, who was recruited by Yori out of high school to play at Creighton, rejoins the Nebraska staff after spending the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons as a graduate assistant manager for the Huskers. Finch returns to Lincoln after spending the past two seasons as an assistant coach at Creighton. She spent her first two seasons as a full-time assistant coach at Northern Colorado (2006-07, 2007-08) following her first stint on the Husker staff as a graduate assistant.
Finch will focus much of her attention on Nebraska’s offense in her first season as an assistant with the Huskers. She will also assist in Nebraska’s opponent scouting and recruiting efforts.
