Former Nebraska point guard Ashley Ford will return home as an assistant coach with the Husker women’s basketball program. Ford, who has spent the past five seasons on former Nebraska Associate Head Coach Cindy Fisher’s staff at the University of San Diego, rejoins the Husker program after helping to lay the foundation of Nebraska’s NCAA Tournament success as a player under coach Connie Yori.
Ford was the starting point guard on Yori’s first Nebraska NCAA Tournament team in 2007. As a senior, Ford started all 32 games for the 22-10 Huskers, while averaging 3.0 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists. In her final game at the Devaney Center on Senior Night, Ford scored a career-high 13 points on 5-of-5 shooting including 3-for-3 from three-point range, in a win over Colorado.
