JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville University Department of Athletics will hold a 3:00 p.m. news conference Friday, April 12 in the main lobby of Swisher Gymnasium to announce the hiring of Yolett McPhee-McCuin as the Dolphins' head women's basketball coach.
A nine-year coaching veteran, McPhee-McCuin comes to JU following a three year stint at Clemson where she was tagged as one of the top assistants in the nation by the National Women's Basketball Insider. During her time in South Carolina she solidified her reputation as one of the most knowledgeable recruiters in the game today. This past season alone McPhee-McCuin spearheaded the No. 16 ranked recruiting class in the country, landing five McDonalds All-American nominees for the Tigers.
Prior to her time at Clemson, she was on staff at Pitt for two years. With the Panthers, McPhee-McCuin helped guide the program to a pair of post season appearances highlighted by a No. 14 national ranking and a Sweet 16 appearance in 2009.
McPhee-McCuin, who also serves as the Bahamian women's national team coach, will be the third head coach in the 14-year history of Jacksonville women's basketball.
Jacksonville students, faculty, staff and the general public are invited to attend.
