Palmer Named to UK Coaching Staff

Storm veteran Wendy Palmer has a new off-season job. Palmer was named to the staff of the University of Kentucky women, moving over after two seasons as an assistant at Virginia Commonwealth.

New UK Coach Matthew Mitchell, a long-time SEC assistant, was happy to add Palmer.

“We are so excited that Wendy is joining our family,” Mitchell said. “Wendy is a WNBA pioneer and will bring so much experience to this staff. Her experience will prove to be invaluable to the success of this program.”

Mitchell and Assistant Coach Niya Butts were in Seattle during training camp to get to know Palmer.
