8 years of success, milestones and achievements have unfortunately come to an end at Exit 81. My time at Grambling State University has garnered a lifetime of friendships, memories and relationships I will forever cherish.

Thank you to all the GSU Tiger fans, students and alumni that have supported me during my tenure as Head Women’s Basketball Coach. I will forever be grateful.
However, this is not the end of the book, it’s just the end of a chapter, and it’s time to start writing a new chapter in my basketball coaching journey. The best is yet to come! Be blessed!
