Duo joins associate head coach Jason Glover and four-year assistant Liz Darger.
Adam Wardenburg begins his first season with Utah Valley women's basketball in 2014-15.
Wardenburg's arrival at Utah Valley marks another step in his ascension up the collegiate coaching ranks. Wardenburg spent last season on staff at the College of Southern Idaho where he helped the Golden Eagles to a 29-4 record, a Region 18 Tournament title, and a berth in the NJCAA National Tournament.
While at CSI, Wardenburg led skill development with post players while also fulfilling other duties such as creating practice plans and game plans. He also worked extensively with recent UVU signee Patrice Toston, an NJCAA first team All-American after averaging 16.5 ppg for the Golden Eagles.
Prior to his arrival in Twin Falls, he spent one season as the Director of Basketball Operations at his alma mater, Utah State University. Wardenburg received his bachelor's degree in Human Movement Science at USU in 2013 and also served as the student manager with Aggie women's basketball during the 2011-12 season.
"Adam has grown up in a basketball family and he is just a quality person," explained Nixon. "He has been around Division I basketball on both the men's and women's side and he has a unique perspective coming to us from the junior college level. He's knowledgeable about scouting and player development, but mainly I think what he brings is a passion for basketball and a knowledge of what it takes to be a part of a successful program."
An Orem native and son of former BYU assistant and current Indian Hills CC head coach John, Wardenburg and his wife Tristan are the proud parents of two-year old daughter Blakely.
"I'm really excited to be here. I love the campus and the atmosphere here," Wardenburg said. "I'm excited about the opportunity to try and help this program achieve a conference championship and make its first trip to the NCAA Tournament. I think this is a team that can win right away and I'm very excited about the pieces we have in place with our returners and with the incoming recruits."
