Yori Named Big Ten Coach of the Year
Lincoln, NE - Nebraska's Connie Yori has won Coach of the Year honors. Her colleagues in the Big Ten named Yori the top coach in the conference after Yori guided the Husker women to a record of 22-7, as well as 12-4 in the Big Ten.
In a statement released by the University, Yori said " All postseason awards are about teams more than individuals. " Yori is in her 11th season with the Huskers. She previously captured coach-of-the-year honors when the Big Red was on the Big 12.
