JSU Adds Two Women's Hoops Assistants

From Star Staff Reports

Reprinted here in its entirety.

JACKSONVILLE Jacksonville State women's basketball coach Becky Geyer has reduced her coach staff by one, but hired two former Division I coaches to make it work.

Janine Hoffman started the women's program at Birmingham-Southern and guided it through its short-lived Division I tenure. Tonya Mackey was recently the head coach at South Carolina State.

Together, they have 28 years of college coaching experience.

Geyer had a three-person staff her first two seasons with the Gamecocks, but sacrificed quantity for quality. Recently signing to a two-year contract extension through 2012 also helped her attract the former head coaches.
