McNeese head women’s basketball coach Brooks Donald Williams has added former Tulane player Tyria Snow to her staff as an assistant coach.
Snow replaces Pauline Love. Love left the Cowgirls to take an assistant coaching position at Southern Miss, her alma mater.
A native of Shreveport, Snow was a member of Tulane’s 2010 Conference USA champion and NCAA Tournament team and the 2011 and 2012 WNIT teams.
“We are thrilled about Tyria joining us,” Williams said. “She is a great young lady and a basketball enthusiast. We are certainly sad to lose Pauline and I am very thankful for the energy and enthusiasm she brought to our program. She is a special young lady to me and I am so happy she is going back to Southern Miss where she played and has so many special ties.
“I have taken great pride in having a hand in helping develop and guide young coaches. There is nothing better than seeing them doing great things in our profession knowing that our girls and McNeese had a hand in it. But once again, we have a wonderful addition to our Cowgirl family with Tyria Snow.”
Snow played in 117 games at Tulane scoring 457 points and dishing out 254 assists.
In her final season at Tulane, Snow was third on the team with 96 assists and a .441 field goal percent.
“Tyria has a special passion for the game. I loved her in recruiting years ago and hoped our paths would cross again,” Williams said. “Her maturity and knowledge of the game are far beyond her years. The girl has championship in her blood.
“She’s won a championship on every level and it makes such a difference to add yet another winning mentality to our staff. I am excited for our girls and our program that we have landed such a gem.”
