Assistant Coach


Danyelle Snelgro enters her third season at Utah and mentors the Ute back court while serving as the recruiting coordinator.

In 2016-17, Snelgro coached point guard Erika Bean to 173 assists, ranking No. 3 in the Pac-12 and No. 31 in the NCAA in assists per game (5.6). She also saw senior Paige Crozon join the 1,000-point club with returning wings Malia Nawahine and Tanaeya Boclair both scoring in double-digits throughout the season.

Snelgro arrived in Salt Lake City in the spring of 2015 after coaching stints at TCU, Fresno State and Utah State.

In 2014-15, Snelgro helped TCU advance to the second round of the Women's NIT after finishing third in the Big 12 Conference--the program's best Big 12 finish since joining the conference. While at Fresno State from 2012-14, Snelgro helped the Bulldogs reach the NCAA Tournament twice after winning consecutive Mountain West Conference Tournament championships. Six of the guards Snelgro coached earned 12 different postseason accolades.

Snelgro played at Utah State from 2005-09, making the all-WAC freshman team in 2005 and becoming the school's first all-WAC first-team selection as a senior when she was also named to the all-WAC Defensive Team. She is currently third in school history in both assists (336) and steals (216) and seventh in career points (1,043).

After graduating with a bachelor's degree in inter-disciplinary studies from Utah State in 2009, she played one season of professional basketball in Finland in 2009-10. The Altadena, Calif., native began working towards a master's degree in liberal arts while at TCU.
