Armintie Price Herrington, one of the most successful players in Ole Miss history, begins her third season on Ladner's staff at the beginning of the 2011-12 season, four seasons removed from leading the Rebels to the 2007 Elite Eight.

When former Ole Miss associate head coach Peggie Gillom-Granderson announced her retirement in 2009 after 22 years on the sidelines, Rebel head coach Renee Ladner was faced with the daunting task of replacing one of the most recognizable faces ever to be associated with Ole Miss women's basketball. Ladner opted to replace one Rebel legend with another when she tabbed Price Herrington as an assistant coach.

With the Rebels, Price Herrington is responsible for the team's post players, overseeing academics for several players and is the liaison with the compliance office.

Having just finished her fifth year in the WNBA, Price Herrington spent two and a half seasons with the Chicago Sky and played an instrumental role in the Sky's rise as one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. She was traded to the Atlanta Dream where she reunited with former Ole Miss head coach and current Dream assistant coach Carol Ross.

During the 2011 WNBA season, Price Herrington helped lead the Dream to its second-consecutive WNBA Finals Appearance. She was named to the WNBA All-Defensive Second Team and finished the regular season averaging 8.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. During the playoffs, she averaged 7.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.6 steals per game.

In 2010, Price Herrington helped lead the dream to an Eastern Conference Championship and a berth in the WNBA Finals against the Seattle Storm. She played in 34 games during the season and averaged 4.9 points per game and 3.0 rebounds per game.

Price Herrington helped the Dream finish the 2009 regular season with an 18-16 overall record and a berth in the playoffs for the first time in franchise history, as the Dream earned the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. She played an instrumental role in helping Atlanta increase its win total by 14 games from its inaugural season. That season, the Dream finished with a 4-30 mark and finished with the fewest wins in the WNBA.

The third overall selection in the 2007 WNBA Draft, Price Herrington started all 34 games for the Sky that season and finished third among rookies in both scoring (7.9) and assists (2.9) per game en route to her selection as 2007 WNBA Rookie of the Year.

Price Herrington finished her rookie season ranked 15th in the WNBA in rebounds (6.0 rpg) and 20th in assists (2.9 apg).

She played an integral role in helping the Sky improve from five wins in the franchise's inaugural season of 2006 to 14 wins in 2007. She also helped keep the Sky in the playoff picture until the final week of the regular season.

A native of Myrtle, Miss., a graduate of Ole Miss and a two-time team captain, Price Herrington engineered a trip to the Elite Eight for the Rebels in her senior season. It marked the first time Ole Miss had advanced that far since 1992. In her illustrious collegiate career, she joined Cheryl Miller as the only two players in NCAA history to amass 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, 400 assists and 400 steals.

During her senior season in Oxford, Price Herrington averaged a team-high 19.1 points, 8.8 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 3.7 steals per game in leading the Rebels to the Elite Eight. In addition, her 3.7 steals per game also led the NCAA. She had 15 double-doubles on the season, bringing her career total to a school-record 57, and also recorded the second triple-double in Ole Miss history with 34 points, 15 rebounds and 12 steals versus Illinois.
At the conclusion of the season, she was named to the ESPN.com All-America first team as well as the Kodak/WBCA All-America team. She joined 2009 Women's Basketball Hall of Fame inductee and Ole Miss great Jennifer Gillom as the only two Rebels in school history to be named to the Kodak/WBCA All-America team.

Price Herrington currently ranks third all-time at Ole Miss in career points (2,165), second in rebounds (1,198) and first in steals (403).
