DEI Alliance: Women of Color Coaches Network President Jackie Carson

By Rising Coaches on Feb 14, 2021 2:16:00 PM

Jackie Carson is the head Women's Basketball Coach at Furman University and the president of the Women of Color Coaches Network.

  1. Why did you get into coaching?

It was purely "accidental". I was a pre-med major in college and once I nished my overseas pro career, I thought I would start getting hours for my medical career. I missed the game so much that I became an AAU coach while getting my hours. The next thing I know, I am interviewing at Bucknell for the assistant coach position and the rest is history.
