Ex-Nebraska Women’s Coach Connie Yori Joins Creighton Staff

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Former Nebraska coach Connie Yori is returning to women’s basketball as a member of the Creighton staff.

Yori, who starred at Creighton as a player and was the Bluejays’ head coach from 1992-2002, will be a program adviser. Coach Jim Flanery said Tuesday she would help develop game strategy, scout opponents and participate in on-campus recruiting.

Yori was the consensus national coach of the year in 2010 after Nebraska went 32-2 and reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. She had a 280-166 record over 14 years at Nebraska along with nine trips to the NCAA Tournament.

Several players and support staff members complained to the Nebraska administration about Yori in February 2015, alleging bullying and disregard for players’ well-being. She denied any wrongdoing and resigned two months later.
