Down To Business:

We are talking with Chevelle (Herring) Saunsoci, also known as Coach Chevy. After a stellar playing career with Creighton from 2005-10, Chevelle returned to the Bluejay bench in 2013 as an assistant coach.

Coach Chevy spent 7 years coaching in the Division 1 level at Creighton University. She focused on recruiting, player development, and her offensive scheme. Her role in player development and offensive scouting helped Creighton to two second-round NCAA tournament appearances.

Now Coach Chevy is using her knowledge to help athletes who want to play college basketball through player development and Film-lytics™. Her ability to develop basketball players and her network of college coaches is helping players go to the next level.
