In the wake of the news that Nebraska Cornhuskers Women's Basketball Head Coach Connie Yori has resigned, the University of Nebraska released the following statements from both her and Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst:

Connie Yori:

"After fourteen years as the Head Coach of the Women’s Basketball program I have made the difficult decision to step down.  As some of you may know, this has been a very challenging time for my family and in the best interest of all of us, this is the right decision.  I want to thank the student-athletes, assistant coaches, staff and administrators, especially Shawn Eichorst, for his leadership and support during this difficult time in my life.  Finally, thank you to the incredible Husker Nation for their passionate and unwavering support throughout my time in Lincoln.  I will always be a proud Husker."

Nebraska AD Shawn Eichorst:

"Earlier today, Connie Yori informed me of her decision to step down as the Head Women’s Basketball Coach at the University of Nebraska.  Coach Yori achieved great success in the program during her tenure and we appreciate her many contributions to the University.  We wish her and her family all the best and we are grateful for her dedicated service to Nebraska.  We will begin a national search for a new head coach immediately and will not comment or speculate on the search or candidates until an announcement is made."
