University of North Carolina Wilmington women’s basketball head coach Adell Harris has named Brittni Oliver as director of women’s basketball operations. Oliver is a native of Kokomo and a Taylor High School graduate. She is in her fifth year with the NCAA Division I Seahawks program and previously served as the program’s administrative assistant.

“She understands our program’s vision and has played a key role in managing the day-to-day operations as our office manager for the last four seasons,” said Harris. “Brittni’s playing experience will help her relate to our players both in their careers at UNCW and more importantly, as they transition to life after sport. I am very excited to promote one of my former players in this profession.”

While at Taylor from 2003-2007, the Lady Titans had a record of 76-20. The program won Class 2A sectional titles in 2004, 2005 and 2006. In 2005, the Titans also won a regional crown before falling to North Judson in the semi-state. Her father, Tony, is in his first-year as the head coach of the Titans after serving as its long-time assistant.

Oliver played basketball at Tusculum College for four seasons, including her final two years under Harris. The Pioneers won the South Atlantic Conference regular season championship in 2008, 2009 and 2011. Tusculum captured back-to-back Food Lion SAC Tournament crowns in 2010 and 2011 and advanced to the NCAA Southeast Region championship and NCAA Division II Elite Eight for the first time in the program’s history in 2010. A 2011 graduate of Tusculum, she earned her Bachelor of Art’s Degree in Sports Management.

Oliver completed her masters of science degree from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in December 2012, with a concentration in sport psychology. During that time, she served as a graduate assistant with the UT Dean of Students office.
