Dayton Flyers women’s basketball head coach Shauna Green has added former Flyer Olivia Applewhite to her staff as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator, the UD department of athletics announced Wednesday.

“I want to thank Coach Green for the amazing opportunity to return to such a special place,” Applewhite said in a release. “Dayton has always had such tradition and I’ve been fortunate to have been a part of some of the most amazing teams. This program has instilled many of the core values that I live by and I couldn’t be more humbled to join the program.”

Applewhite was named Atlantic 10 Sixth Woman of the Year in her senior year (2013), and played in 121 games during her Flyer career.

“I am so excited to welcome Olivia back home to Dayton,” Green said. “Olivia brings great energy, knowledge of the league, experience as a former student-athlete here at UD, and an overall passion for this great university. She will be a great addition to our staff and I know that our players will all be better because of her being a part of our Flyer family.”

Applewhite has spent the last five years at Saint Louis University, where she earned her master’s degree in business administration. She played three seasons professionally overseas in France, Ireland, and Denmark, and later joined SLU as a graduate assistant.
