Nebraska women’s basketball assistant goes to Kansas

Kansas has hired Tory Verdi and Chester Nichols as assistant women's basketball coaches.

The university said Tuesday that the new coaches will replace Karen Lange, the new head coach at MidAmerica Nazarene, and Tamika Raymond, who resigned.

Verdi spent the past five seasons as an assistant coach at Nebraska, which finished 32-2 and won the Big 12 title this past season.

Nichols was an assistant at Central Florida last year and spent the previous six seasons as an assistant coach at West Virginia.
