Kelley, who was hired in July of 2014, comes 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.

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 number one seed during the 2010 NCAA Tournament. She ended her playing career No. 17 on the all-time Nebraska scoring list with 1,107 career points.

“We are fortunate to be able to bring in a quality individual like Dominique to our staff,” Baranczyk said. “She is a young, energetic, up-and-coming coach who comes from an outstanding program in Nebraska and a tremendous head coach in Connie Yori.”

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. Dominique married Clyde Johnson in June of 2012.
