Nebraska women’s basketball coach Amy Williams was named the Big Ten Coach of the Year by the league’s coaches and media. She lead Nebraska to a 20-9 record and 11-5 in conference play in just her second year leading the team. They recently earned the #3 seed in the conference tournament. This all with three underclassmen starting in what was one of the youngest team in the conference.

The turnaround for Williams was nothing short of inspiring. In her first year at the helm the team went 7-22 and 2-14 in conference play. No one could have predicted a turnaround like this.
Amy is a former Husker basketball player herself from 1994 to 1998. She most recently coached at the University of South Dakota where she had a 96-44 record and lead the Coyotes to the WNIT champions in 2016.
Congratulations to Amy and the best of luck in the Big Ten conference tournament.
