Yesterday the ISU women’s basketball assistant coaches were recognized on CollegeInsider.com for what they have accomplished as an ISU coach. 

Associate coach Jack Easley and assistant coaches Jodi Steyer and Latoja Schaben were selected by the website as top 25 coaches in the nation. 

“To build a great program like we have at Iowa State you have to have a great team in all areas,” said ISU head coach Bill Fennelly in a news release. “I have that at Iowa State with a great staff and the recognition they received is well deserved. My staff defines what good assistants should be. They are loyal, hard working and knowledgeable. They have a true passion for teaching young people.”

Easley is currently in his ninth year as a coach for the ISU squad and was listed at No. 13. Steyer, who is in her 10th season was listed as No. 16. Schaben, who is in her 15th season at Iowa State, was not ranked, but received honorable mention recognition.
