North Dakota State University director of athletics Matt Larsen has named Jory Collins the next head coach of the Bison women's basketball program. The announcement was made Monday. 

Collins will be the 11th head coach of the Bison. Collins just finished his first year as an assistant at the University of Kansas after spending eight seasons as the head coach at NCAA Division II Emporia State.

He succeeds Maren Walseth, who parted ways with the university earlier this season.
