|Position:||Graduate Assistant Manager|
Former Husker guard Dominique Kelley returned to the Nebraska program in 2012-13 in the role of graduate assistant manager.
Kelley's primary responsibilities at Nebraska include assisting with practice preparation and administrative duties, while coordinating Nebraska's efforts on Twitter and Facebook. She helps coordinate Nebraska's practice players and plays a role with Coach Connie Yori's Nebraska Women's Basketball Camps.
Kelley helped the Huskers to an NCAA Sweet 16 bid in 2012-13, as Nebraska finished the year with a 25-9 overall record and a 12-4 Big Ten mark. Both win totals ranked second in school history, trailing only the 32-2 mark and 16-0 Big 12 record the Huskers produced when Kelley was a junior guard for the Huskers in 2009-10.
Following the completion of the 2012-13 campaign, Kelley participated in the "So You Want to be a Coach" program at the WBCA National Convention in New Orleans.
"Dominique was like a coach on the floor for us during her time at Nebraska. Her work ethic and leadership skills are great assets to our program in her role as a graduate assistant. Dominique is a tremendous leader with great character who brings a lot of energy to the table," Yori said. "She gained coaching experience last year while she was still completing her degree at Nebraska, and hopefully this will be a great next step on her way to a coaching career."
Kelley joined the Husker staff after earning her bachelor's degree in broadcasting from Nebraska in May of 2012.
The Lincoln Northeast High School graduate claimed honorable-mention All-Big 12 accolades as a junior on the best Husker women's basketball team in school history in 2009-10. Kelley averaged 12.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game while shooting 43.1 percent from three-point range to help the Huskers capture the 2010 Big 12 Conference regular-season title. She helped power NU to a perfect 29-0 regular-season record and 30 consecutive wins to open the season. Nebraska finished the year with a 32-2 mark after earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and making the school's first-ever NCAA Sweet 16 appearance.
During the Huskers' three games in the 2010 NCAA Tournament, Kelley averaged 18.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.0 steal per game, while shooting 60 percent from the field.
Kelley's senior season in 2010-11 was cut short by knee injuries. Through the first 11 games as a starter, Kelley averaged 15.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists. Before being sidelined by injuries, Kelley started the first 110 games of her NU career. Despite missing more than 15 games as a senior, Kelley still finished among the top 20 scorers in school history with 1,107 points. She also ranks No. 3 in Nebraska history in career three-point percentage (.389) and seventh in career free throws made (383) and attempted (490).
While completing her bachelor's degree at Nebraska in 2011-12, Kelley served as assistant coach and junior varsity coach for the Doane College women's basketball program.
Kelley, who was married to Clyde Johnson in June of 2012, is pursuing her master's degree in education administration.
