Donnie Bowman has been an assistant coach for 12 seasons,
assisting LCU Hall of Famer Nancy Siddens from 1997 to 1999 and
Amanda Bowman, also a Hall of Famer, in 2001-2009 and 2011-2014.
As an assistant coach, Donnie made three trips to the NCCAA
national tournament and most recently went to the regional
tournament with the second-seed team on a winning record of
13-9. In addition to assistant coaching at the college level,
Bowman brings head coaching experience at the high school and
junior high level, leading the Illini Central girls of Mason

Bowman, who had a successful basketball career with LCU for
three years as a player, is a graduate of LCU and Illinois State
University and is a U.S. Navy veteran. He currently teaches
history at Illini Central High School.
"Donnie has been around the game for a long time, as both a
player and a coach," said Mac Ingmire, LCU athletic director.
"He knows the X's and O's as well as anybody. He'll fit in great
with our current coaching staff and will bring some exciting and
fresh ideas to LCU's Athletic Department."
