Cowgirls Asst. Coach Has Journey of LifetimeBojan Jankovic ended his playing career in 1996, leading the team to the National Small College National Championship in 1996. From then he started coach, first in Serbia.
"About 4 years ago, I was invited to be an assistant coach on the Serbian national team."
"Our goal was just to grow as the players and get the sport more popular in my country. We have more kids, girls interesting in basketball so they can, you know go and play and get out of the street. Of course it's different for boys, but at least be involved with sports."
Over the last four years, the Wyoming assistant coach grew women's basketball from two thousand registered players to a serious national contender. For the first time, the Serbia national team played in the Olympics this year in Rio.
"It culminated this summer after four years with the Olympic games in Rio. it was an amazing experience. First to just be in the Olympics is amazing experience athlete or coach, but to win a medal was bigger thing for me. It's hard to explain. It's probably going to take a few years to even realize we did it."
