Jill Minkel enters her first year as recruiting assistant for the women’s basketball program after spending the past five seasons as an assistant coach for the Waldorf College women's basketball program. Minkel graduated from Waldorf College in 2007, earning her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mass Communications. Minkel was a key recruit in the 2003 recruiting class for Coach Jerome. During her time as a Warrior, Minkel played basketball until she was struck with injury. Four knee surgeries later, Minkel finished her college career as a Student Assistant.
Minkel graduated from Cedar Falls High School in Cedar Falls, Iowa, in 2003 - a traditionally strong basketball program. Minkel was a varsity starter during her junior and senior seasons. In her junior season, Minkel was named the most improved offensive player and was an MVC All-Conference player. As a captain in her senior season, Minkel had the highest field goal percentage and most rebounds on the team, was the most improved defensive player, named to the MVC All-Conference Team, and received district honors.
Before assisting Head Coach Denny Jerome, Minkel had six years of experience coaching within the Cedar Falls basketball program, AAU, the Iowa Games, and at Snow Valley Basketball School.
Minkel currently works at Waldorf College as the Assistant Director of Admissions. She is currently pursuing her master's degree in organizational leadership through Columbia Southern University.
