Presnell Announces Staff Changes
June 9, 2016

BOISE, Idaho  - Gordy Presnell, Boise State’s head women’s basketball coach, announced today a couple changes to his staff with the promotion of Cariann Ramirez to assistant coach and the addition of Julia Fishman as the director of operations.

Ramirez, who has been the director of operations for the program for the last six seasons, has been moved up into an assistant coach position filling the vacancy left when Sunny Smallwood accepted a position at the University of Arizona last month. The 2005 Boise State graduate will now be involved primarily with practice sessions, game-day coaching, scouting and recruiting.

Ramirez’s previous coaching experience includes serving as an assistant at Boise High School from 2005-2009 and a short stint with the College of Idaho for the 2009-10 season before joining the Bronco staff as the director of operations. While at the College of Idaho, she helped guide the Coyotes through an impressive season. The program’s accomplishments included: finishing the season at 21-8 overall, winning the Cascade Collegiate Conference regular season with a 14-4 mark and the school’s first league tournament title, finishing the season ranked 20th-nationally in NAIA Division II and advancing to the NAIA National Tournament. While at the College of Idaho she helped coach one NAIA All-American Third Team honoree, the CCC Defensive Player of the Year, three All-CCC honorees and five Daktronics/NAIA All-America Scholar-Athletes.

Julia Fishman served as the program’s operation assistant this past season helping Ramirez with the day-to-day operations of the program. The 2014 graduate of the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma Wash., now assumes the role of director of operations responsible for organizing the day-to-day operations of the basketball office, coordinating travel, equipment and film exchange, as well as organizing summer camps, clinics, community service, on-campus recruiting, alumni relations and the Little Broncos Club.

Both officially began their new roles on Monday, June 6.
