Head coach Karen Aston announced on Monday that current assistant coach Jamie Carey has been promoted to associate head coach.
Carey, who played on Texas’ 2003 NCAA Final Four team, has been as assistant on Aston’s staff for the past three seasons.
“When Jamie returned back to the Forty Acres two years ago, I was so thrilled to have someone that I knew bled Burnt Orange,” Aston said. “Although that is a great quality, what Jamie brings as a coach is so much more. Her desire to grow young women and help them reach their maximum potential has had an enormous impact on our program. This was a natural move for her and I’m so thrilled she has chosen to stay the course and help our program pursue excellence.”
During her time as part of Aston’s staff, Carey has helped the Longhorns to a 53-16 overall record.
“It has been both a privilege and honor to be a part of such a great coaching staff and women’s basketball program at The University of Texas for the past two years,” Carey said. “I would like to thank Karen for believing in me 16 years ago as a player and continuing to do so today as a coach. I am truly humbled by this new opportunity and look forward to continuing to develop, support and serve our student-athletes at The University of Texas.”
