Taylor Coleman, who coached a JB Hoops girls team in 2018 and was preparing to do so again this season, has been added to the Bucknell University women’s basketball coaching staff.
Coleman moves from the University of Scranton where she spent the last two years as an assistant to Trevor Woodruff, who landed the Bucknell head coaching position.
“We are excited to add Taylor to what’s shaping up as a great coaching staff here at Bucknell,” Woodruff said, according to a story on the Bucknell athletic website. “In addition to our familiarity, having seen her ability to coach and recruit the past two seasons made her a priority hire.”
Scranton was 25-3 in the Landmark Conference and 57-5 overall in the two seasons Woodruff and Coleman worked together. Their last game coaching the Lady Royals was in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III Final Four.
Coleman also had spent two seasons each as an assistant coach at Susquehanna University and her alma mater, DeSales University.
Woodruff’s first hire for his coaching staff was Kelly Mazzante, a former WNBA and international professional player. Mazzante had graduated from Penn State as the Big Ten’s all-time leading scorer with 2,919 points. She had coached the last five seasons as an assistant at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, which reached the last two Division II Final Fours.
