Dominique Kelley was promoted to assistant Drake women's basketball coach in July of 2015.

Kelley, who served as the Bulldogs’ coordinator of basketball operations in 2014-15, came to Drake after a two-year stint as a graduate assistant at the University of Nebraska, where she was a standout, four-year starter for the Cornhuskers from 2007-11.

“Dominique has an incredible feel for our program after playing at the highest level and working in a variety of roles as a young, energetic, up-and-coming coach,” said head coach Jennie Baranczyk. “I love how she encourages and mentors our student-athletes while pushing and empowering them. She is a great fit in our program and we are lucky to have her here!”

The Lincoln, Neb., native started 109-consecutive games until a knee injury limited her to just 12 games her senior campaign. A two-year team captain, Kelley helped the Cornhuskers to a 32-2 overall record and a trip to the school’s first-ever Sweet 16 as a No. 1 seed during the 2010 NCAA Tournament. She ended her playing career ranked No. 17 on the all-time Nebraska scoring list with 1,107 career points.

 Kelley spent one season as an assistant coach at Doane College in Crete, Neb., before returning to Nebraska in 2012-13. The Cornhuskers captured their first-ever conference tournament title in 2013-14 and won an NCAA Tournament game for the second consecutive season. Kelley graduated from Nebraska with a master’s degree in educational administration in May of 2014 and a bachelor’s degree in broadcasting in May of 2012.
