Coach Mitchell has made some fast changes to his staff in the post season, but he isn’t finished yet. Last week, UK announced the hire of Bucknell University’s Christian Stefanopoulos. Today, they announced that Amy Tilley has been promoted to the assistant athletics director for women’s basketball for the UK Hoops program.
Tilley has been with UK Hoops for six years, including three years of work as the director of basketball relations and recruiting. This past year at mid-season Tilley took over the duties of the assistant athletic director position after the person in the position left.
Coach Mitchell said he was very happy with the promotion.
“Amy stepped into this role under difficult circumstances in the middle of this season and she just did an incredible job,” Mitchell said. “She is motivated and passionate about Kentucky and she is involved in the development of this program on so many levels. She invests so much time and thought into making our program better each day and I can’t think of anyone better to be in this role than her.”
