It’s a family reunion in more ways than one.

Former SFU Clan women’s basketball star Dani Langford is returning to the team with which she won two Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) national titles as a player, this time as the team’s fulltime assistant coach for the 2008-09 season.

Langford, the daughter of SFU head coach Bruce Langford, has been in Australia for the past 2½ years pursuing her master’s degree in physiotherapy while playing for two different club teams in the country’s Division I league.

“She is a very strong motivator who is able to relate to players and provide good technical and tactical advice,” says her father and new boss. “Her leadership abilities as a player make her a quality addition to the staff.”

The younger Langford was a part-time assistant coach with the Clan in the fall of 2005 but left mid season to pursue her master’s degree.

A member of the Clan’s national championship teams in 2002 and 2005, she was named most valuable player of the 2005 tournament. She is a two-time Canada West All-Star (’04, ’05), a two-time Junior Canadian National Team member (’00, ’05) and was Basketball B.C.’s high school player of the year in 1999.
