Ohio women's basketball's new head man, Bob Boldon, has begun to put together the pieces of his staff. Boldon hired Tavares Jackson and Kate Schrader to be assistant coaches.
Both Jackson and Schrader spent the past three seasons at Youngstown State with Boldon and helped him turn an 0-30 program into one that went 23-10 last season.
Jackson served as Boldon's recruiting coordinator and assisant coach during his time at YSU. Before heading to Youngstown State, Jackson worked at Division II Slippery Rock University where he helped in recruiting as well.
Kate Schrader played at Florida Gulf Coast University, where she originally met Boldon when he was an assistant there. She played two seasons at FGCU and then served as a graduate assistant there from 2008-09 and was also an assistant with Boldon in 2009-10. During her playing days for the Eagles, Schrader led FGCU to a combined two-year record of 63-3. She was also named First-Team Division II All-American selection her senior year when she helped lead the Eagles to a National Championship game.
