Janet Butler enters her fifth overall season with the Nevada women's basketball program in 2016-17 and her second as an assistant coach.

Prior to last season Butler had been promoted from director of operations to assistant coach, marking her second promotion of her tenure. The Louisiana native served two seasons as the program's director of operations and was the graduate assistant for the 2012-13 season.

Prior to her time in Reno, Butler spent one season as an assistant coach in her home state at Division I Louisiana-Monroe. She earned her undergraduate degree in 2011 from Louisiana College, and received her master's degree from Nevada last May.

During her collegiate playing days Butler helped lead Louisiana College to a 25-4 record as a senior captain in 2010-11, ultimately reaching the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament. She was a three-time All-American Southwest Conference honorable mention selection as well. Louisiana College was nationally ranked twice, won two conference championships and made two national tournament appearances during Butler's career.

Butler is the daughter of Larrie and Margaret Butler, and has two younger sisters, Kristi and Molly.
