Mimi Reid Named to the 2022 “So You Want to Be A Coach Class”

The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association in partnership with WeCOACH has announced its class for the 19th “So You Want to Be A Coach” program, with Ole Miss redshirt-senior Mimi Reid earning a place on the list.
 
Throughout her four-year playing career in Oxford, Reid has appeared on the court in 103 games for the Rebels, making 87 starts. The Bronx, N.Y. native has accounted for 432 assists in her career, ranking second in the SEC in active career assists. This season, she is averaging 4.4 dimes a game and dished out a season-high nine against LA Tech.
 
The “So” program increases the understanding and application of skills necessary to secure coaching positions in women’s basketball, increases the understanding and awareness of competencies necessary for success in coaching, introduces female basketball players to coaches and administrators, and raises awareness of the existing talent pool of female basketball players who have a passion and interest in coaching the game of women’s basketball.
 
“So” participants will learn about the administrative side of coaching, recruiting, how to get hired, skill development, the importance of knowing the rules, and how to balance work and life.
 
Qualified candidates must have exhausted their final year of basketball eligibility at a four-year institution or have graduated within the past year and must be nominated by their WBCA-member head coach. Each participant is selected based on her academics, contributions to women’s basketball on and off the court, professional resume´ and a written recommendation from their head coach.
