Not long after UK confirmed early this afternoon that freshman phenom Batouly Camara was leaving the program, assistant coach Tamika Williams-Jeter has also decided to depart. Her vacant job is posted on UK’s website. UK confirmed to Jen Smith that the former UConn standout resigned from her post.
For those keeping track at home, since last fall six players and two assistant coaches have left Matthew Mitchell’s program. Williams-Jeter joins Adenine Amadou, whose contract was not renewed after the season.
When the pieces began to fall apart before the 2015-16 season, I didn’t worry. A little attrition is normal, especially in women’s athletics. Now it’s just absurd.
Hopefully Makayla Epps isn’t hung out to dry for her final season. With Evelyn Akhator, Maci Morris and Alexis Jennings, there are solid contributors, but they need more help to make a significant run.
