Northeastern women’s basketball head coach Kelly Cole introduced Lauren Tebsherany as the program’s new coordinator of operations. Tebsherany, who graduated cum laude from Boston College in 2013, arrives at NU after spending four seasons in the same role at Bryant, where she also received her master’s degree from with honors in 2015.
“We are tremendously excited to welcome Lauren to Northeastern,” said Cole. “Her dedication to the student-athlete experience during her time working at Bryant and Boston College is undoubted. She will play a big part in helping propel our program to the next level.”
While serving as the director of women’s basketball operations at Bryant, Tebsherany assisted the program in all day-to-day areas, including the organization of team travel, adherence to NCAA compliance regulations, direction of scouting and film exchange, and coordination of student-athlete academic necessities. From 2013 to 2017, her primary role with the Bulldogs was acting as the liaison between the student-athletes and the coaching staff and athletic administration, facilitating the balance between the team’s competitive, academic, and public service activities.
In addition to managing Bryant’s internal team responsibilities, Tebsherany also spent time developing the program’s external reach, organizing its youth basketball clinics while communicating frequently with the Black & Gold booster club. During her four-year tenure at Bryant, the Bulldogs made four consecutive NEC semifinal appearances, finishing runner-up during the 2017 league championship game.
Before arriving at Bryant, Tebsherany was a four-year manager with the Boston College women’s basketball team, serving as head manager during the 2012-13 season. While working with the Eagles, she helped guarantee that all logistics behind the team’s practices, home games, and road trips ran smoothly, tending to various tasks, including the preparation of film for the team’s video analysis sessions. During the offseason, she aided the coaching staff with its recruitment process, managing duties within the women’s basketball office while also assisting with the program’s summer camps.
Besides her operative experience, Tebsherany also holds a background in athletic media relations. As an administrative assistant in the Boston College athletic communications department, she created and upheld the “Eagles in the NFL” update for bceagles.com while managing content on the BC women’s soccer and field hockey social media accounts. Tebsherany also interned with the Boston Celtics in media services, where she was responsible for administrative and basketball-related activities on game days.
Outside of basketball, Tebsherany has helped promote several community initiatives, as during her time working with The Rendon Group. During the summer of 2012, she researched sponsors for the STAND UP to Bullying convention – the largest anti-bullying convention in the U.S. – while also supervising Women2Women, a global leadership and peace-building conference for high school and college-aged girls.
Tebsherany earned her bachelor of arts in communication and international studies from Boston College with a 3.7 GPA and her masters of art in organizational communication from Bryant with a 3.85 GPA.
