In two key ways, Amy Williams’ women’s basketball staff at the University of South Dakota will boast familiarity to both the new head coach and her inherited players.
Her new assistants announced Thursday, Chuck Love and Tandem Mays, followed Williams from NAIA Rogers State in Oklahoma and will join Ryan Larsen and Brooke Atkinson to complete the Coyote staff.
From two vastly different situations, the foursome will come together to bridge the gap between back-to-back 20-win seasons and next season’s NCAA post-season eligibility. At least that’s the hope, Williams said Thursday.
“I felt like it’s my number one goal as the head coach to put together a staff that could all bring something unique; something different to the table,” she said from Chicago, where she is recruiting. “I feel like we’ve done that.”
