Anthony Epps has a new job. The former Wildcat point guard is now an assistant coach for the women’s basketball team at Northern Kentucky University. Epps joins NKU from the high school ranks where he coached the boys (and before that, the girls) at Campbellsville High School.
Camryn Whitaker, head coach of the Norse (and former UK assistant), said of the hire, “We are absolutely thrilled Coach Epps decided to join our family at Northern Kentucky University. I had the privilege of coaching Anthony’s daughter, Makayla, at the University of Kentucky and can’t wait to have him alongside helping lead our talented group of young women. His playing experience at a championship level, knowledge of the game and ability to coach and develop players will help our team reach another level! We welcome Anthony and his family to Norse Nation and can’t wait to get started.”
Epps said, “I’m grateful and blessed to be joining the women’s basketball staff at Northern Kentucky University. Thank you Coach Whitaker for this amazing opportunity in the next chapter of my life. I am excited to work with this staff and team as we compete for Horizon League Championships! To God be the Glory! #NorseUp.”
Congrats to the Kentucky legend!
