FAU hires new basketball coach

BOCA RATON, FL (AP)- Florida Atlantic has hired Kellie Lewis-Jay as its women's basketball coach, giving her a five-year contract.

It's the second time in recent months that FAU has picked a former Nebraska assistant to fill a coaching vacancy at the school. The Owls hired Carl Pelini late last year to take over their football program.

Pelini was the Cornhuskers' defensive coordinator. Lewis-Jay spent the past five seasons as a Nebraska assistant coach, coordinating the team's recruiting efforts.

During Lewis-Jay's time at Nebraska, the Cornhuskers went to the NCAA tournament three times. She also spent four seasons as an assistant at Washington.

FAU went 17-13 this past season, its last under coach Chancellor Dugan.
