FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State head women's basketball coach Raegan Pebley announced the hiring of Danyelle Snelgro to her staff. Snelgro is the first assistant coach to be added to Pebley's staff. Snelgro spent the past two years as an assistant at Utah State under Pebley.
"I consider it an honor to have a person and coach of Danyelle's character, experience, knowledge and potential join our staff," said Pebley. "She has always been a woman who values the opportunity she has to influence student-athletes lives and a program."
Snelgro was a standout point guard for Utah State from 2005-09. In 2009, Snelgro became the first Utah State women's basketball player to earn first-team all-Western Athletic Conference honors. She was also named to the WAC all-defensive team in 2009. Snelgro led the Aggies in scoring (14.2 ppg), assists (128) and steals (73) in 2008-2009.
"Danyelle has not only played for me but she has coached with me," said Pebley. "She knows first-hand our expectations on and off the court. She will do an excellent job modeling, reinforcing and recruiting towards these expectations."
Snelgro is one of only six Aggies to reach the 1,000 point milestone and now stands at fifth all-time on the Aggie list with 1,043 career points. She is also USU's all-time steals leader with 216.
In 2010, Snelgro played professionally in Jyvalsklya, Finland averaging 14.7 points, 3.2 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 2.8 steals.
