Candice M. Jackson will join the University at Buffalo women’s basketball team as an assistant coach, the athletic department announced Thursday.
Jackson coached for five seasons at the College of Charleston, and replaces Cherie Cordoba, who joined the women’s basketball staff at LSU earlier this week.
Jackson played at Michigan State from 2000-04. UB coach Felisha Legette-Jack was an assistant coach with the Spartans from 2000-02.
Jackson was 39-113 at the College of Charleston, and the school announced in March that it would not renew Jackson’s contract. Prior to coaching at the College of Charleston, Jackson was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Duke for three seasons, and also was an assistant at Wake Forest and Richmond.
