The UNO women added a new basketball assistant coach Monday with the hiring of Taylor Ignoto.

Ignoto spent last season as the coach at NJCAA Division III Rock Valley College, leading the Golden Eagles to a 25-6 record and a North Central Community College Conference championship. Before taking over at Rock Valley College, Ignoto spent two seasons as an assistant at Western Illinois. The Leathernecks won Summit League regular-season and tournament championships during her first season with the team in 2016-17.

“We are very fortunate and excited to welcome a coach on the rise such as Taylor to our coaching staff,” UNO coach Brittany Lange said. “With her experience already as a successful coach in the Summit League and head coach, we are confident in the immediate impact she will have in our program.”
