Denver Hires David Elliott as Women's Basketball Assistant Coach

Cremeans finalizes coaching staff by naming David Elliott as assistant coach

David Elliott enters his second season with Denver in 2016-17.

Elliot just wrapped up his first season in 2015-16. The second-year coach was part of the development of a very youthful roster that featured only one senior on the team in Paige Bradley. He also helped the development of game plans and recruiting duties.

Elliott joined the Pioneers in June of 2015 after being an assistant women's basketball coach at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., since 2013. In the last two seasons with the Prairie Fire program, Elliott assisted in all daily basketball activities, including player development, recruiting, strength and conditioning and travel.

In just his second season on staff at Knox College, Elliott was named associate head coach in March of 2014 by Knox College head coach Emily Cline.

Before Elliott's time at Knox College he coached at Columbia University in New York during the 2012-13 season. His responsibilities at Columbia included recruiting (recruited a nationwide 2013 class), low-post and guard development, half-court team defense, designing and directing the preseason conditioning program for all players, film breakdown and exchange, as well as organizing and directing Columbia women's basketball clinics for underprivileged youth in the New York City area.

Prior to arriving at Columbia, Elliott was a graduate assistant women's basketball coach at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York between 2010 and 2012. He helped lead the team to two straight appearances in the conference tournament, the best conference record (12-4) in five years, and a runner-up finish in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Metro postseason tournament.

Elliott received a Bachelors' degree in Microbiology from the University of Arizona in 2009, before going on to earn a Masters' degree in Organizational Learning and Human Resource Development from St. John Fisher College in 2012.
