    Shannan Lum added as Recruiting Coordinator

    Per UNL

     

    Lum will serve as Recruiting Coordinator, a newly-created position on Nebraska’s basketball staff. In that role, she will help the Husker coaching staff in advanced scouting, including opponent and team self-scouting, as well as game preparation. She will also oversee the recruiting landscape for the Huskers with a focus on the NCAA transfer portal, including implementing and managing NU’s recruiting database and assist with recruiting research.

     

    “Shannan brings experience working for both the Pac-12 and Big East programs, and she provides our staff another valuable perspective. Her background in coaching and operations will enhance our basketball staff in game preparation as well,” Hoiberg said.  “When we evaluated our entire program following the season, we wanted to enhance player development as well as look for opportunities to take advantage of the changing recruiting landscape. The addition of Shannan to our staff is another step in the process as we look for ways to elevate our program.”

     

    She is the second female to currently hold a title of Recruiting Coordinator at a power conference program, including the first of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) descent.

     

    Lum comes to Lincoln after serving as Director of Video for the Cal women’s basketball program for the last two seasons. In that role, she oversaw program's scouting and analytics, video breakdown and exchange, and assisting in recruiting and player development through film. She worked as an intern for the Stanford women’s basketball program under Hall of Fame Coach Tara VanDerveer for the 2018-19 season, assisting in the Cardinal's basketball analysis for scouting and day-to-day operations.

     

    A 2018 graduate of St. John's University, Lum spent her final two seasons in Queens as a head manager and operations assistant with the Red Storm men's basketball program. She also spent two seasons working with the St. John's women's basketball program, and served as a basketball skills and development trainer in San Francisco. She earned her bachelor's degree in sport management with a concentration in coaching at St. John’s University.

    Lum might be an unknown commodity here but has ties to the staff from St Johns. Here is Lum being escorted onto the court by Luca Virgilio during Senior Night at St Johns.

    Seems like another wise move by Fred to me. From both a basketball and publicity standpoint it establishes the national perception of a "cutting edge" program.  Now we just have to get some "Ws". Plus, I used to like the old Lum's franchise on "O" street back in the day, so there's that.

    Yeah, no way, no how this is a gimmick move.  I trust she is going to be an excellent addition to the staff.

    My assessment is that Fred does a good job identifying and filling needs.

    I'd say the most surprising part about this hire is that we didn't already have this position given how important the talent of the roster is for winning games.

    Did you get the sherry-flavored sauerkraut on your Lum's dog?

    Just one more solid move showing Fred’s in this for the long haul, GBR!

     

    Either that, or trying to find a more sustainable way to continue to recruit at a high level, and less reliance on individuals, even if/when Matt decides to take his career elsewhere.

    I’ve got a hunch Matt sticks around (based on nothing of course) until we win a B1G Title or make a couple deep tournament runs...

    Kobe Webster posted a story today that alluded to her no longer being at Nebraska. Robin confirmed and would provide more info tomorrow. 

    On Twitter? IG? I couldn’t find it….
