Laura Harper Accepts Loyola Coaching Job

Laura Harper (2004-08) will join the Loyola University (Maryland) Greyhounds as an assistant women's basketball coach this fall. From the team's press release:

Laura Harper, a former University of Maryland standout and WBNA post player, has joined the Loyola University Maryland women's basketball coaching staff as an assistant, Head Coach Joe Logan announced today. Harper replaces another former Terrapins player whose jersey now resides in the Comcast Center rafters, Keith Booth. [...]

Harper, who played four seasons at the University of Maryland, graduated from the school in 2008 and was picked 10th overall in the WNBA draft to the Sacramento Monarchs. The power forward averaged five points and 3.7 rebounds in her first two seasons as a pro. [...]

Most recently, Harper played overseas in Russia for the Dynamo Moscow. During the 2011-12 season, she also played for Antakya Turkey, averaging 13.3 points and 9.9 rebounds.

As the story references, Keith Booth moved this spring from being an assistant on the Loyola women's team to join the staff of the school's men's team.
