Holliday Promoted To Assistant Coach With Women's Basketball

July 9, 2018

Head Coach Charity Elliott has announced that the Loyola Marymount women’s basketball team has promoted Jasmin Holliday to an assistant coaching role.

Holliday served as the team’s director of operations for the 2017-18 season and has been with the program for three years overall, getting her start as a graduate assistant in 2015-16 and then moving into an administrative assistant position within LMU Athletics, specifically women’s basketball, in 2016-17.

“We are so excited to move Jasmin into an assistant coaching position,” Elliott said. “She started as our graduate assistant and then moved up to our DOBO position and now she is one of our coaches on the floor. Her loyalty, hard work and patience has paid off and we are all so happy for her. She is such a great role model for our players and now being able to use her on the floor will be so beneficial for our team. This was an easy decision as her positivity and commitment to LMU is proven and she’s ready to begin this new role on our staff.”

Holliday will join Elliott, associate head coach April Phillips and assistant coach Chris Elliott to complete the LMU women's basketball staff.

Holliday played collegiate basketball at the University of Oregon from 2008-12, finishing her career among the Ducks' top-10 in career games played (124, T-2nd), steals (183, 7th) and blocks (109, 8th). She went on to play professionally with Huima in Aenekoski, Finland in 2012-13 and then with Gruner Stern Keltern in Keltern, Germany in 2013-14.

"I am honored to not only continue being part of the LMU women’s basketball program, but to also be joining an incredible coaching staff," Holliday said. "Having witnessed the growth of this program under Coach Elliott the past three years, I look forward to helping build something special with the staff and student-athletes. I’d like to thank Coach Elliott for the opportunity. I’m beyond excited to get started in this new role and contribute to our team's championship aspirations."

 

 

Holliday is a native of Chino Hills, Calif., and currently resides in Westchester. She graduated from Oregon with a bachelor’s degree in journalism with a focus in communications in 2012 and later earned her master's degree in educational studies from LMU in 2017.
