Simone the Coach

Congrats are in order for retired Storm center Simone Edwards. Radford University announced this morning the hiring of Edwards as an assistant coach for their women's basketball team.

“She has competed with and against the best in the world and has also had the benefit of learning from one of the best post players of all time in Anne Donovan,” said Porter. “Along with that, she opens the door to international recruiting with her connections to the Caribbean countries and specifically to her native country of Jamaica. I believe that her expertise will enable us to take our recruiting and our inside presence to an entirely new level. We are extremely excited that she has decided to join our basketball family and we welcome her to Radford University.”

Since retiring as the last original Storm player last May, Edwards has been working with her foundation, Simone4Children, to help Jamaican youngsters.

UPDATE: Here's the official release on Edwards' hiring.
