ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – St. Bonaventure head women's basketball coach Jim Crowley announced on Tuesday that assistant coach Priscilla Edwards has resigned and accepted the same position at St. John's University.
"Priscilla will always be a Bonnie and we will miss her, but this is a very good opportunity for her," Crowley said. "She committed eight great years to the program and has made a significant impact. St. John's is getting not only a great coach but a great person as well."
Edwards, a 2008 and 2009 graduate of St. Bonaventure, has served on Crowley's staff for the last three years and past two seasons as an assistant. She was responsible for the organization and coordination of recruiting and also oversaw game scouting and film breakdown, in addition to practice and game preparation. Furthermore, she led the year-round preparation and execution of individual development workouts for both guards and post players.
A Harlem, N.Y. native, Edwards was a four-year letterwinner for the Bonnies, concluding her career in 2008-09 as part of what was then the best team in program history. The Bonnies won a then-program-record 23 games and advanced to the quarterfinals of the WNIT.
During the 2009-10 season, Edwards served as the Director of Basketball Operations, assisting in the day-to-day management of the team, including program organization, travel and video exchange.
This past season she helped guide the Bonnies to their first NCAA Tournament appearance, advancing all the way to the Sweet 16 and concluding the year with a program-record 31 victories – tied for the most in a single season by an Atlantic 10 Conference team.
