Duo joins associate head coach Jason Glover and four-year assistant Liz Darger.
Vicki Bohney begins her first season at Utah Valley in 2014-15.
Prior to arriving at UVU, Bohney held head coaching positions at three Utah high schools since 2005. That year, she took over as the head varsity girl's basketball coach at Mount Vernon High School in Murray. After two years there, she moved to Highland High School in Salt Lake, where she remained for four seasons. While at HHS, Bohney earned Region 6 Coach of the Year honors after leading the Rams to a 16-7 overall record in 2008-09.
In 2011, Bohney began a three-year stint at Taylorsville High School. In 2011-12, the Warriors went 17-5 overall and a perfect 10-0 in region play to claim the Region 2 title and to give Bohney her second Coach of the Year award. Last season, THS went 11-11 overall with a 7-3 region mark to finish third in Region 2.
Aside from her coaching endeavors, Bohney has also served as the President of the Utah Women's Basketball Coaches Association since 2009. In that capacity, she led coaches' clinics, organized Senior All-Star games, and managed finances and a statewide coaches database for the UWBCA.
"I've gotten to know Vicki over the last four or five years and she is very good at a lot of things," Nixon said. "She has a very strong organizational ability and she can manage chaos well. That's something we need in our program -- her strength on the administrative side as well as her knowledge as a former head coach."
A native of Wilmot, South Dakota, Bohney received her bachelor's degree in physical education from Moorhead State University in 2005, where she also played two seasons with the Dragons. She also completed her master's degree in Education from Adams State in 2002.
"Being at the college level has been one of my aspirations for a long time," said Bohney. "I know it's not an easy field to get into, especially coming from the high school ranks. But for Cathy [Nixon] to give me this opportunity has been awesome. I'm very excited to be here. UVU is growing and it's an exciting place to be and I look forward to doing whatever I can to help this program progress and succeed."
