LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming head women's basketball coach Cindy Fisher announced the promotion of Assistant Head Coach Mary Ann Falcosky and the hiring of Aubrey Eblin as an Assistant Coach. Both hirings are subject to UW Board of Trustee approval.
Falcosky, who has been with the Cowgirl program for the past two seasons, is being elevated to the second assistant coaching position created by the departure of Trina Wilson. She will continue her work with academic counseling, along with coaching the post players and recruiting. Falcosky came to Wyoming from Mesa Community College, where she had been an assistant coach since 1994. She also served as the head coach for the Arizona Elite Basketball Club since 1997. A 1993 graduate of Northern Arizona university, she earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics and secondary education. She is currently pursuing her master's degree in education.
"Mary Ann has done an outstanding job in the program for the past two years," said Fisher. "Promoting her to second assistant was a very easy decision. I look forward to having her on the road recruiting for us, and being able to benefit even more from her contacts in the Southwest region."
Eblin joins the Cowgirl staff after spending a year as a graduate assistant with the Wyoming athletic department. Eblin was a four-year letterwinner in basketball at Old Dominion, the same time head coach Cindy Fisher was an assistant with the program. While at ODU, she was a part of four Colonial Athletic Association Conference Championships, four Sweet 16 appearances, and the national champion runner-up spot in 1997. She earned CAA All-Tournament team honors as a junior, and made the NCAA Mideast Regional All-Tournament team in 96-97. A native of Chillicothe, Ohio, Elbin earned a bachelor's degree in sports management from Old Dominion in 1999. She is pursuing her master's degree in health and physical education from Wyoming.
"I'm very excited about the addition of Aubrey to my staff," added
Fisher. "Having coached her for three years at Old Dominion, we share a
lot of the same ideas and philosophies about the game. She has a great
work ethic, and brings a very positive and exciting energy level to the
team and the University."
