NASHVILLE --- The search is underway for a new women's basketball coach at Tennessee State University to replace Valencia Jordan, who was recently reassigned within the university's athletics department. TSU Athletics Director Teresa Phillips hopes to name the new coach by July 1. A national search is underway to fill the position. Jordan followed Phillips as the TSU coach and served in the position three seasons after posting an 8-4 mark to close the 1998-99 season during the time Phillips was serving as interim AD. ?Coach Jordan is a hard-working and loyal person who has displayed great commitment to Tennessee State,? said Phillips. ?She has strengths and assets that she will continue to bring to the athletic department. ?We are in the process of identifying candidates and hope to move along quickly in the coming weeks in filling the position.?
