Former  Mississippi State University women’s basketball standout Savannah Carter has been hired as an assistant coach at Pearl River Community College n Poplarville, Mississippi.

PRCC head coach Scotty Fletcher announced Carter’s hiring Thursday.

“I am beyond excited to welcome Savannah Carter to my coaching staff. Savannah brings so many things to the table that are invaluable within a program. She came highly recommended from Texas associate head coach Johnnie Harris from their time together at Mississippi State,” Fletcher said in a statement. “When you look at her playing resume and see that she won a national championship at the junior college level and went on to be part of two 20-plus win seasons at Mississippi State and started in the most rigorous league in the country and played in the NCAA tournament, I think that speaks volumes.”

Carter was head coach at Jacksonville College in Jacksonville, Texas, from 2018 to 2020.

Fletcher was more than satisfied with Carter’s history of coaching.

“When I visited with Savannah, I quickly realized she has a true passion for developing young women on the court and off. I love the fact that she has worked in the junior college ranks and also been a head coach,” Fletcher said. “She is fully aware of what is required from that position serving as both assistant coach and head coach.

“I think she will make an immediate impact on recruiting and player development within our program.”

Carter was one of the nation’s top point guards at Tulsa Memorial High School in Oklahoma, where she was named as an All-American in 2011. She went on to play at Grambling, Trinity CC and Mississippi State University, and she made a big impact on each of her teams.

Carter now joins the PRCC Wildcats who finished with a 15-9 record. She will also be the team’s recruiting coordinator and work with the point guards.
