Rod Jensen joins Cougar women’s basketball staff

Former Boise State men’s basketball coach Rod Jensen has been hired as the top defensive assistant for the Washington State women’s basketball team.

Jensen, who worked under former men’s head coach Ken Bone in 2013-14 at WSU, replaces former women’s associate head coach Brian Holsinger, who resigned earlier this month to spend time with his family, the university announced in a news release.

“Rod brings a wealth of experience to our program and we are excited to have him back at Washington State,” women’s coach June Daugherty said in the release.

Jensen served as the head coach of the men’s program in Boise from 1995-2002 and compiled a 109-93 record. He’s also worked as an assistant at Virginia and UNC Greensboro. He also was the head coach at the NAIA College of Idaho from 2010-13.
