Mickie DeMoss leaves UT, named to staff of Indiana Fever
Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt announced today that assistant Mickie DeMoss was leaving her staff to join the WNBA’s Indiana Fever.
“From my perspective, I am so excited for Mickie,” Summitt said in a UT release. “Coaching at the next level has always been one of her professional aspirations, and the Fever is one of the best teams in the league.
“Obviously, Mickie is not only a great coach but she is a lifelong friend. We will certainly miss her at Tennessee and the contributions she has made during the 20 years she has been a part of our championship program.”
A 35-year veteran at the very height of NCAA women’s basketball and the 2006 SEC Coach of the Year, DeMoss served 20 seasons as an assistant and associate head coach at Tennessee. She spent three seasons as an assistant to Gail Goestenkors at Texas and served four years with record-breaking results as the head coach at Kentucky.
