Texas Tech Lady Raider Assistant Coach Joins WNBA Staff
Brandi Poole, an assistant coach/recruiting coordinator at Texas Tech will join the Connecticut Sun when the Red Raiders’ season ends.
“I am so grateful to be joining the Connecticut Sun,” Poole said. “I look forward to being reunited on the bench with Curt. We have won a lot of games together and cut down a lot of nets. I believe in his championship locker room approach and in how he prepares his teams to be successful. He took a chance on a young coach 17 years ago, and we built two programs together. Now, I am looking forward to working with some of the best basketball players in the world and helping the Sun win a title.”
Poole was an assistant coach for the Sun Head Coach and General Manager Curt Miller at Indiana and Bowling Green. “I am so excited to be reunited with my longtime and talented assistant coach,” Miller said. “We have a fantastic relationship and helped build two programs during our 13 years together at the collegiate level. Brandi is widely considered one of the elite assistant coaches in the country. She has tremendous work ethic and is the best multi-tasker I have been around in my coaching career.”
Early in Poole's coaching career she spent some time with the Portland Fire.
The Sun finished second in the Eastern Conference last season before losing to the Pheonix Mercury in the first round of the WNBA playoffs.
