Nashville --- Tennessee State University head women's basketball Tracee Wells has announced the hiring of Donna Brown-Wynn as an assistant coach.

Brown-Wynn brings over 20 years of Division I coaching experience to Tennessee State. She spent the past 13 years with the Belmont University women's basketball program and served as Associate Head Coach for the past seven.

"I am beyond excited to have Coach Donna Brown-Wynn to join my staff and our team here at Tennessee State," commented head coach Tracee Wells.  "Coach Wynn comes with years of experience at the Division I level and she's well respected within the ranks of women's basketball. She was as a stand-out player at Mississippi State and has continued on a track of success that I know she is anxious to bring here to TSU. Her knowledge of basketball, the game itself, is going to assist us with our future goal of winning an OVC championship."

Brown-Wynn was a highly successful recruiter for the perimeter, helping to attract some of the region's top players to Belmont.  In addition to recruiting, she was involved in all aspects of the Bruin program including academics, individual workouts, practice planning and instruction.

Brown-Wynn was a key contributor to the development of the guards during her 13 years at Belmont. Under her guidance, several Bruin perimeter players garnered numerous accolades. Most recently, Brown-Wynn coached a player that was ranked in four NCAA Division I statistical categories at the conclusion of the 2008-09 campaign.

Under her guidance, Brown-Wynn has produced two All-Freshmen players, a two-time Atlantic Sun All-Conference selection, a second-team All-Independent player, a first-team All-Independent selection and a Beach Classic MVP.

A four-year starter for Mississippi State University, Brown-Wynn graduated in 1993 with a bachelor's degree in business management. After graduating, she joined the coaching staff as a graduate assistant in 1994, before becoming a full assistant in 1995. She received her master's degree in sports administration in May 1996.

A native of Vicksburg, Mississippi, she is married to Micheal Wynn.

"I'm excited about the opportunity here at Tennessee State University and being a part of Coach Wells' staff," said Coach Brown-Wynn.  "Our relationship goes back several years and she's an awesome young coach that's doing great things in the Ohio Valley Conference. I'm looking at the very near future of winning right now. I'm extremely passionate about what I do and teaching young ladies is what I love doing. Tennessee State has such a rich tradition and I'm thrilled about being a part of that tradition now. I'm just grateful God has blessed me with this opportunity and I'm excited about what lies ahead."
