Former Lady Bear Niya Johnson has joined the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor women's basketball program as assistant coach, Cru head coach Mark Morefield announced on Monday.

"Her playing experience at such a high level of college and professional basketball made her an attractive candidate," Morefield said in a statement. "But I was really impressed with her vision of what she can do to help our program and our individual players improve."

Johnson was a four-year All-Big 12 selection as Baylor's starting point guard. She earned All-American honors as a senior. Johnson played for four Big 12 Championship teams. She finished her career as the conference's all-time leader in assists.

Johnson played one season of professional basketball in Switzerland after closing out her Baylor career. She graduated from Baylor University in May of 2016 with a degree in Health and Kinesiology.
