Savannah State assistant women’s basketball coach Brenda Warren has left the program, due to health reasons.
Warren, who has been a part of the SSU basketball staff for five years, left the team midway during the 2016-17 season. During her time with the Lady Tigers, she was a part of the coaching staff that won the 2015 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament title. That same year, SSU defeated the Florida Gators in a game played at Tiger Arena. Before coming to Savannah State, Warren was the head track & field coach and the head junior varsity and assistant varsity basketball coach at Russell County High School in Seale, Alabama.
Prior to that, she was the head women’s basketball coach at Chattahoochee Valley Community College in Phenix, Ala.
The Alexandria, Virginia native coached a CVCC team that qualified for the Alabama Community College Conference Tournament three times. During the 2006-08 seasons, her teams had a 100 percent graduation rate.
Warren earned her undergraduate degree from Voorhees College and her graduate degree from Troy. While at Voorhees, she played for current SSU women’s head basketball coach Cedric Baker and was a pivotal part of a late 90’s NAIA championship team. Warren was able to see SSU play on Nov. 13 when the team played at Alabama State.
Baker is conducting a search to find Warren’s replacement.
