NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana announced Thursday the hiring of Tarniesha Scott as assistant women’s basketball coach. Scott, who has experience as an NAIA head coach and an NCAA Division I assistant coach, began her XU duties Monday (Aug. 1, 2016).

“I am very appreciative of the Xavier administration for giving me the opportunity to advance my coaching career with the Gold Nuggets,” Scott said. “I’m excited to be a part of such a great university and successful women’s basketball program. I’m ready to assist the program in achieving our desired goals and help further our success.”

Scott was on the women’s basketball staff at Talladega College for two seasons (2012-14). She led the Lady Tornadoes to a 10-3 record as interim head coach to close the 2013-14 season, the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference regular-season championship (by a half-game over Xavier), a berth in the NAIA Division I National Championship and a No. 25 ranking in the postseason coaches poll.

Scott was an assistant coach at NCAA DI Prairie View A&M during the 2014-15 season. She helped the Lady Panthers tie for third place in the SWAC and win non-conference road games against Houston and Sam Houston State.
