|Title:||Assistant Women's Basketball Coach|
The 2017-18 season will mark Kim Coleman's (Coach Kim) first campaign on the sidelines for the Stormy Petrels.
Coleman spent the past eight seasons at Emory, where he was responsible for many aspects of the program, including guard/post pre-practice programs, recruiting, post player development, and on-floor coaching. He was a part of the Emory staff that claimed the 2012 University Athletic Association (UAA) title and UAA Coaching Staff of the Year.
Prior to Emory, Coleman had a successful five-year stint as head coach at Milton High School in nearby Alpharetta. He guided the program to an overall record of 99-43, along with five state playoff appearances. Under his direction, the Lady Eagles captured the Region 6-AAAAA title in 2006 while finishing that campaign with a 25-4 record. He was named the 2006-07 Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Region 6 Coach of the Year and assisted many student-athletes attain their goals of playing at the college level (i.e. Furman, Clemson, Penn State, Valdosta State, Saint Louis and more).
During his tenure at Milton, Coleman prided himself on building a program strictly on local area talent. This philosophy, along with a focus on academics, allowed the Milton basketball program to continually move players on to the next level.
“Our team motto was family and each player who played at Milton is treated with dignity and respect," said Coleman, "allowing the program to maintain a positive atmosphere.”
Coleman is married to Elisa (24 years) and has two children, Chase (Stetson grad and current Starbucks corporate executive) and Blake (freshman at Rice).
