RIP Squad Diaries

The things we're thankful for...

Nadine Morgan enters her 13th season with the Boilermakers, serving as an assistant coach for eight seasons before being promoted to associate head coach in 2014. She has spent 13 of her 15 years in college coaching alongside head coach Sharon Versyp, logging one season at Indiana before arriving at Purdue, and spending two years as an assistant at James Madison. Morgan’s primary duties with the Boilermakers include recruiting coordination, scouting and guard development.

In 12 seasons at Purdue Morgan has been a part of nine NCAA Tournament appearances, a pair of Elite Eights, four Big Ten Tournament Championships, six Big Ten Tournament Championship game appearances and eight top-five Big Ten Conference records. She’s helped guide the Boilermakers to 10 20-plus win seasons, including each of the last three seasons, and record-setting team marks for free throw shooting, 3-point shooting and ball security.

Alongside Versyp, Morgan has played an instrumental role in 11 top-25 recruiting classes, including four in the nation’s top-10. The 2015 recruiting class was ranked eighth in the country by ESPN HoopGurlz, and first in the Big Ten, while the 2016 group featured the No. 20 overall player. Morgan and Versyp have teamed to produce some of the top players in program history as well, including 11 of the top-30 scorers all-time at Purdue, seven of the top-10 3-point shooters, three of the top-10 assist leaders and two of the top-10 steal leaders.

In her one season with the Hoosiers, Morgan helped Indiana to a 19-14 overall record and 9-7 conference mark, and in two years at JMU, her alma mater, she helped the Dukes to a 31-29 record.

Morgan, who was recruited to James Madison by Versyp, was a four-year starter and a three-year captain for the Dukes. She finished her career ranked fourth in career rebounds (793) and seventh in career points (1,365). Those numbers put her as one of only two players in James Madison history to score more than 1,300 points and collect over 750 rebounds. She also was tied for second in games started (112), ranked third in made free throws (325), fifth in consecutive games played (119) and tied for sixth in total number of games played. Morgan was named first team All-CAA in 2001 and voted to the Colonial Athletic All-Tournament team in 2001 and 2003.

Morgan also excelled in the classroom. In 2003 she was named first team CoSIDA/Verizon Academic All-District III and to the CAA All-Academic Team. Morgan also was a finalist for the 2002-03 JMU Scholar-Athlete of the Year award. She graduated in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in health sciences.

The Stone Mountain, Ga., native was a member of the Georgia Magic 17 and under AAU team that won a national championship in 1999. She was also a two-time all-state selection while competing at Stone Mountain High School.

Morgan is active in the Greater Lafayette community and her volunteer activities include the Read to Succeed program, Lafayette Urban Ministry and Purdue’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes program. She has also been on mission trips to Haiti and South Africa during her tenure with the Boilermakers.
