Head coach Peter McGahey added Kelsey Passaglia to his staff as an assistant in February 2018.
Passaglia served over the past four seasons as an assistant at Fort Wayne after a two-year stint on the coaching staff at Western Illinois. She was a four-year starting forward at Northern Illinois from 2008-11.
"She has the focus on the right values and character and standards that fit our program," McGahey said. "Her competitiveness is outstanding and she has had ascending experiences at other Division I institutions and has played in the MAC. I think all of that is going to be immediately beneficial to us."
Passaglia earned her bachelor of science degree in health education from Northern Illinois and her master of health science from Western Illinois.
