Jolette Law Accepts Assistant Coaching Position at Tennessee

UPDATE - 5:00 p.m. ET: Jolette Law has indeed joined Holly Warlick's staff."I have known Jolette since she was a high school prepster we recruited out of Florence, South Carolina," said Warlick in a release. "Our Lady Vol teams competed against her while she was a standout player at the University of Iowa, and I've gone head-to-head in recruiting and coaching against her while she was top assistant to Rutgers' Hall of Fame Coach C. Vivian Stringer.

"Besides the X's and O's of the game and her reputation as an excellent recruiter, Jolette is just a great individual and a terrific role model. She will be a great fit for us at Tennessee."

According to a source that is familiar with the search, Jolette Law has agreed to become the new assistant of the Tennessee Lady Vols.

As first reported last week, Law was in Knoxville interviewing for the job as the final piece of new head coach Holly Warlick's staff.

With Warlick already adding Kyra Elzy as an assistant, the Lady Vols still had another assistant coach vacancy due to the departure of Mickie DeMoss to the WNBA's Indiana Fever. In Law, Tennessee adds a coach who is nationally recognized as an outstanding recruiter: during her tenure at Rutgers as an assistant under Hall of Famer C. Vivian Stringer, Law was a major part of eight top 10 recruiting classes, including three that were ranked as the best in the nation.

With the combination of Elzy and Law, Tennessee is clearly making a push to continue their success into the future on the foundation of great recruiting to a program that now-Head Coach Emeritus Pat Summitt has built into a national power.
