Evan Unrau enters her second season as an assistant coach on the USC staff. Prior to joining the Women of Troy, Unrau was an assistant at Santa Clara, where she handled the post players and recruiting from 2009-12. Unrau was an assistant at UC Santa Barbara for the 2008-09 season, helping the Gauchos to a 22-10 overall record, a Big West Tournament title and a berth to the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Unrau also served as video coordinator at Stanford during the Cardinal's run to the 2008 NCAA title game.
"In spending time with the Stanford program and gaining coaching experience at UC Santa Barbara and also at Santa Clara, Evan knows how to win, and she knows player development especially with coaching big players," Cooper said of Unrau. "The knowledge she brings, and her recruiting skills are well known."
As a player, Unrau was a four-year letter winner at Missouri and finished her career as the program's No. 3 all-time rebounder. She earned All-American Honorable Mention after helping her team to their ninth NCAA Tournament appearance during her senior season. She also represented the United States at the 2003 World University Games in South Korea as the captain of the Big 12 All-Star team. Unrau was drafted in the third round of the 2004 WNBA Draft by the Washington Mystics and played abroad in Luxembourg in 2006-07.
A native of Fort Collins, Colo., Unrau graduated from Missouri in 2004 with a degree in psychology and completed a masters in health education and promotion from UM in 2006.
