This summer OleMissSports.com will run a summer series in which we introduce the new faces around the Ole Miss women's basketball team. We continue this summer series with new video coordinator Sean Stephenson.
Ole Miss welcomed former Westview High School head women’s basketball coach Sean Stephenson to the women’s basketball family on May 28. Stephenson served as the head coach for the last nine seasons. Stephenson led his squad to nine 20-win seasons, including two 30-win seasons. His squads advanced to five sub-state appearances including back-to-back appearances in 2013 and 2014. Stephenson has NCAA experience serving as a graduate assistant at UT-Martin from 1997-99. During his time with the Skyhawk’s, they won the Ohio Valley regular-season championship and reached the Sweet Sixteen of the WNIT.

Stephenson: Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Tim Duncan
Jordan will always be my favorite player. I grew up when he was playing for North Carolina and Chicago. I enjoyed the Celtics/Lakers rivalries in the 80’s and Bird, Magic, and Worthy were obviously huge parts of that. I love the way Tim Duncan continues to play the game at a high level. All of these players are winners!
