MSU women's basketball

Members of the Mississippi State women’s basketball coaching staff have a photo taken together during their 2018 trip to Italy. The staff includes Dionnah Jackson-Durrett, from left, Elena Lovato, Johnnie Harris and head coach Vic Schaefer. Jackson-Durrett was promoted to associate head coach as announced by Schaefer on Monday.

A case can certainly be made that the Mississippi State women’s basketball team wouldn’t have been as dominant as it has been the last few years without assistant coach Dionnah Jackson-Durrett. Now, Jackson-Durrett has been rewarded for her contributions with a promotion to associate head coach.

The Bulldogs and head coach Vic Schaefer officially announced the news on Monday.
