Former Clemson coach hired by S.C. State
South Carolina State announced on Wednesday that former Clemson head women's coach Audra Smith has been hired as their new women's basketball coach.
Smith was not retained after the 2017-2018 season at Clemson as the team went 11-19 overall and 1-15 in the Atlantic Coast Conference play. Over the length of her tenure for the Tigers, Smith went 52-99 and 9-70 in the ACC.
Smith is the mother of Clemson men's basketball guard A.J. Oliver who averaged 7.2 minutes and 2.1 points a game last season.
Before coming to Clemson, Smith went 138-138 at UAB after a 10-year run as an assistant at Virginia.
