REPORT: Mississippi State set to hire McCray-Penson

According to multiple reports, Mississippi State is set to name Old Dominion’s Nikki McCray-Penson as their new head women’s basketball coach. She would replace Vic Schaefer, who departed for Texas last week. McCray-Penson was on WHoopDirt.coms list of candidates earlier in the week.

The former University of Tennessee and WNBA standout just wrapped up her 3rd year at ODU. This past season, she went 24-6 and garnered the C-USA Coach of the Year Award. Previously spent ten seasons as an assistant at South Carolina where she won a National Championship in 2016-17.

More on this when it becomes official.
