Brittany Hudson enters her third season on the Ole Miss women's basketball staff in 2016-17.
Upon her hiring, head coach Matt Insell expressed that he was ecstatic to add a coach of Hudson's caliber to the Ole Miss staff.
"I am extremely excited about having Brittany Hudson join our staff as an assistant coach," said Insell. "Brittany is one of the top recruiters in the country and the experience she has recruiting in the SEC, coupled with her ability to recruit the top players in the country made her a `must hire’ in my eyes."
Crucial to the Ole Miss recruiting game, Hudson helped Simmons put together a top-20 recruiting class for 2016-17. Hudson helped develop Ole Miss guards Madinah Muhammad and Shandricka Sessom who helped lead the Ole Miss guard play in 2015-16. Sessom, who averaged just 5.3 points per game as a freshman, was Ole Miss’ leading scorer as a sophomore scoring 15.6 points per game.
Muhammad was Ole Miss’ top scoring freshman with 7.5 points per game – a number that increased to 8.4 points per game against SEC competition and was second to just Sessom.
In her first season at Ole Miss, Hudson worked with assistant coach Alex Simmons to bring in a nationally ranked 2015 recruiting class. Hudson works with the Ole Miss guards and saw them improve throughout the course of the season. Ole Miss guards saw their numbers increase across the board and Hudson was instrumental in helping rookie A'Queen Hayes earn a spot on the SEC All-Freshman team.
Hudson is widely regarded as an up-and-comer in the coaching ranks and is a dynamic recruiter. Hudson helped the Bulldogs to a top 100 recruiting class, including signing Mississippi girl's basketball all-time scoring leader Victoria Vivians.
A 2008 Georgia State graduate, Hudson spent two years on head Coach Vic Schafer's staff leading the Bulldogs to a postseason appearance in 2014, its first since a run to the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2009-10.
Prior to her stint at Mississippi State, Hudson spent a season at Daytona State College in her hometown of Daytona Beach, Fla. She worked alongside 2012 Mid-Florida Coach of the Year Cal Cochran and helped nine players earn FCSAA All-Conference honors, including a league-best four first-team selections.
Hudson also spent time at Morehead State with current Ole Miss Director of Operations, Eric White. Hudson served at the Eagles' Director of Operations during the 2010-11 season. Morehead State advanced to the semifinals of the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament and a 21-10 record that season.
The Florida native has an extensive AAU background, serving as a coach with the prestigious Florida-based Essence Girls basketball program. In addition to her coaching duties, she arranged tournament travel and served as site director for numerous tournaments.
Hudson played her collegiate basketball at Georgia State and Valdosta State. With the Panther's, Hudson scored 215 points and averaged 3.0 rebounds per game in 70 games. She also led her team to the Atlantic Sun Championship game. In her final season at Valdosta State, she averaged 11.4 points and was an All-Gulf South Conference selection while leading her team to the NCAA Division II South Regional.
Hudson prepped one season at Mainland High School before leading Florida A&M University High School, leading them to their first state championship.
