Gonzaga University women’s basketball head coach Kelly Graves announced the hiring of current WNBA player and former Stanford University standout Nicole Powell as an assistant coach with the Bulldogs. Powell replaces Julie Shaw, who is now the head women’s basketball coach at the University of La Verne.

“I am excited to have Nicole join the staff,” said Graves. “She is the whole package; has had some phenomenal experiences, is a tremendous player, has a Stanford pedigree — playing for a great program, and most importantly she has a great personality.”

Powell is currently closing out her 10th year in the WNBA and first with the Tulsa Shock. She was the third overall pick in the 2004 WNBA Draft; selected by the Charlotte Sting.
