Bryce Currie Named Assistant Women's Basketball Coach
Bryce Currie, who has four years of experience working with two major Division I programs, is the new assistant women's basketball coach for the Moccasins. He will be the top assistant for new head coach Holly Borchers.
Currie has been a graduate assistant with the University of Nebraska women's basketball program the past two seasons under coach Connie Yori. With the Cornhuskers, he assisted with practice preparation and handled a variety of administrative duties. Nebraska was 24-9 this past season and was runner-up in the Big Ten Conference Tournament in its first season in the Big Ten.
Before joining the Nebraska staff, he was a graduate assistant for two seasons with the Arizona State women's program and coordinated the team's marketing efforts. Those efforts helped Arizona State average over 3,400 fans for its women's basketball games in 2008-09, the second-best attendance in the PAC-10.
A native of Spokane, Washington, Currie received his bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Washington in 2008. While there, he worked all four years with both the women's basketball team and the men's basketball team.
He received a master's degree in higher education from Arizona State in 2010 and earned a second master's degree in educational administration from Nebraska this past May.
Currie joins an FSC program that has produced back-to-back 20-win seasons, back-to-back Sunshine State Conference regular season championships and back-to-back NCAA tournament bids with Borchers as assistant coach. A six-year assistant under Jarrod Olson with the Moccasins, she was named head coach April 12 when Olson left to become head women's basketball coach at California Baptist.
