Virginia Tech women’s basketball announced the addition of Lindsey Hicks to the staff as an assistant coach.

She had this to say about joining the Hokies' staff.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to join the Hokie family,” Hicks said. “Coach Brooks and his staff have done a great job and I look forward to working alongside them to help continue that success in the future both on and off of the court.”

Hicks joins the Hokies after a four year stint with Louisiana Tech as the associate head coach, where she helped guide the Lady Techsters to Conference USA top four finishes and WNIT appearances in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. She replaces Britney Anderson who left for Stanford earlier this offseason.

Head coach Kenny Brooks had this to say about how excited he is to have Hicks joining his staff at Virginia Tech.

“The combination of her playing experience both at the collegiate level and professional levels, with her coaching experience will add knowledge that will serve the coaching staff and players as well," Brooks said.

Native to Lebanon, Ohio, Hicks was named a Parade All-American and signed to Purdue University, which had the nation’s number one recruiting class in 2000.

In her collegiate playing days with the Boilermakers, Hicks won three Big Ten championships and was the runner-up in the 2001 NCAA Tournament. She also reached the Sweet 16 in 2003 and the Elite Eight in 2004.

Hicks followed up her collegiate career days by playing professionally overseas for six years in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, and Switzerland. During her only season in the Danish League, Hicks won the honor as the Most Valuable Player as a member of Vitus Bering.

When Hicks returned to the United States, she took an assistant coaching position at Morehead State where she oversaw a plethora of team activities including organizing team travels and scouting opponents.

After two seasons at Morehead State, Hicks took a job at University of Alabama as a video coordinator, which consisted of her breaking down game film and scouting opponents of the Crimson Tide.

After her time at the University of Alabama, Hicks spent one season at Northwestern State helping the Lady Demons earn their third straight postseason appearance prior to leaving for her job at Louisiana Tech.
