Kenya Landers enters her first season as an assistant coach at Ole Miss in 2012-13. She will serve as the recruiting coordinator for the Rebels.

"It's going to be great to have such a high-caliber coach join my staff," head coach Adrian Wiggins said. "She has been a head coach of a national championship team and was a very high-level Division I player. She will bring a great deal of wealth and experience to our program."

Most recently, Landers served as a co-head coach at Trinity Valley Community College (Texas) where she led her team to a 36-0 record and a national championship in 2011-12. During her two years at TVCC, Landers posted a 70-3 overall record with two appearances in the national championship game.

Prior to Landers' coaching stint at TVCC, she was an assistant at LSU from 2008-10 under Van Chancellor, where the team made two NCAA tournament appearances and signed nationally ranked recruiting classes. Prior to LSU, she spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Oklahoma State University under former TVCC head coach, the late Kurt Budke. The Cowgirls made NCAA Tournament appearances in 2007 and 2008, advancing to the Sweet 16 in 2008.

The Duncanville, Texas native played a key role as point guard for TVCC from 1998-2000 as she posted the college's first-ever perfect season (36-0) and fourth national title in six years. In her two years at the college, the Lady Cardinals were 60-6.

Landers transferred to the University of Texas where she played for the Longhorns from 2000-02. At Texas, she played in all 65 of the Lady Longhorns' games in her two seasons, starting 63 games. As a senior, she led the Longhorns to the Sweet 16. Landers played professionally overseas for two seasons, leading her European Pro League (Israel) team to the playoffs twice.

She earned her bachelor's degree in education from the University of Texas in 2002.
