Western Michigan women’s basketball head coach Shane Clipfell announced on Tuesday the addition of Presley Hudson as the Director of Player Development and Basketball Operations.
Hudson’s role with the Broncos will be to monitor all academic progress of the student-athletes while assisting with travel plans for the team and coaches. Hudson will also organize and manage team managers, organize film for scouting purposes, assist with on-campus visits and organize community service activities for the team and coaches.
Hudson joins the Broncos after a stellar four-year career at in-state rival Central Michigan where she is the all-time leader for the Chippewas in points (2,309), assists (643), three-pointers made (407) and free-throw percentage (.924). During her playing career Hudson was a three-time First Team All-MAC selection and is one of six individuals in NCAA Division I history with more than 400 career three-pointers made.
“This is a really terrific addition to our staff. What I saw out of Presley over the course of her career is exactly why I’m excited she is on our staff,” said Clipfell. “She has benefited from our game and has a lot she can give back.”
After her playing career in Mount Pleasant, Hudson played with the Seattle Storm of the WNBA before signing professional contract to play for Politechnika Gdanska in Gdansk, Poland.
“She was driven to be the best and that’s a trait that never goes away,” said Clipfell. “Our young point guards in particular will want to gather as much insight from her as they can.”
