Webster’s Dictionary defines coach simply: to instruct and train.

East Tennessee State women’s basketball coach Brittney Ezell feels that the instruction and training should come both on and off the court for her players.

“We’re cheapening their college experience if it’s only about basketball and what they read in a book,” said Ezell, who is in her first season at the helm of the Lady Bucs. “College should be about what you learn about yourself and about the world around you. Life is about people and communicating with them.”

To that end, Ezell has instituted an off-court program for her players that will ensure success in their lives after basketball.
