Shannon Bush | Assistant Coach

Fresno State head women's basketball coach Jaime White has announced the addition of Shannon Bush to the Bulldogs' coaching staff on July 12, 2017. Bush brings 11 years of Division I coaching experience to Fresno and spent the previous two seasons as an assistant coach at the Siena University.

Last season, Bush helped Siena win 13 conference games for only the second time since the 2003-04 season. The Saints received the No. 4 seed in the MAAC Tournament, while tying for third in the standings, the highest seeding for the program since they also earned the four seed in 2011.

Prior to Siena, Bush was an assistant coach at Vermont from 2010-15 and was instrumental in bringing in some of the top recruiting classes in Catamount history. UVM boasted the America East Conference's top recruiting classes in both 2011 and 2012 with the 2012 class marking the first top-100 ranked recruiting class in program history. In all, Bush mentored four America East All-Rookie Team selections.

Bush began her coaching career as an assistant at Sacred Heart University from 2006-10, where she helped guide the Pioneers to 19 or more wins in each of her four seasons and 85 victories in total. Sacred Heart won two Northeast Conference Regular Season Championships (2007, 2009) during her tenure with the 2008-09 team going undefeated in conference play en route to winning the NEC Tournament Championship and advancing to the NCAA Tournament.

A native of Doylestown, Pa., Bush played collegiately at Holy Cross from 2002-06 where she appeared in 111 games. Bush was named to the Patriot League All-Rookie Team following the 2002-03 season and was named a team captain her senior year. During Bush's four years the Crusaders won 78 games, capturing Patriot League Championships and making NCAA Tournament appearances in both 2003 and 2005.

She graduated in 2006 from Holy Cross with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and received her Master of Arts in teaching from Sacred Heart in 2008.
