Stephanie Follett joins Auburn women's basketball staff

Stephanie Follett has been hired onto the Auburn women's basketball staff, head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy announced Friday. Follett will take the position of Special Assistant to the head coach.

 "I am so excited to have Stephanie join me here at Auburn," said Williams-Flournoy. "We worked together years ago as assistant coaches at Southwest Missouri State and I have been impressed with her since then. She is energetic with a great personality and I know she will bring that same energy and attitude with her to Auburn."

 As the Special Assistant to the Head Coach, Follett will handle community relations, personal appearances and speaking engagements for Williams-Flournoy. She will also head up the Auburn women's basketball summer camps and will assist with team academics.

 Follett spent five seasons at Southwest Missouri State from 2002-07 as an assistant coach, helping the Bears to three Missouri Valley Conference championships and four post-season appearances, including three trips to the NCAA Tournament.

 Prior to her time at Southwest Missouri State, she spent two years at Brewster (N.Y.) High School in a variety of positions, including assistant varsity basketball coach and junior varsity head coach. Following her time with the Bears, she returned to the teaching profession in North Carolina.

 A native of Stormville, N.Y., Follett is a 1996 graduate of the University of Maine, earning a degree in elementary education. She was a four-year letterwinner for the Black Bears from 1992-96, making the North Atlantic Conference All-Rookie Team as a freshman and was an NAC All-Conference pick as a sophomore and senior.

 Follett led the team to two NCAA Tournament appearances as a junior and a senior. She also became the seventh player in Maine history to reach 1,000 career points and 500 rebounds. Following her collegiate playing career, she was a member of the People-to-People All-Star Team in Belgium.

 Follett was married in July, 2007 to her husband Andy, a former assistant football coach at Missouri State and Western Carolina. He is currently the offensive coordinator at Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss. The couple welcomed their first child, Drew, in February, 2009.
