Tomekia Reed: A Contender for Tennessee Women’s Basketball

The Tennessee women’s basketball job is open and the name Tomekia Reed is percolating around the basketball world. 

Reed’s name was one of 11 listed as potential candidates to fill the vacancy after Tennessee basketball parted ways with Kellie Harper on Monday by Knox News.

Tomekia Reed reportedly interviewed for the head coach position at Tulane University. That job, however, is now off the market.

Tulane announced that it was hiring Stony Brook head coach Ashley Langford to take over its program. Reed reportedly interviewed for the job prior to the hire.

“As a former member of the Green Wave’s women’s basketball program, Ashley understands the importance of success on and off the court,” said Tulane President Michael A. Fitts. “Her commitment to both athletics and academics were central to her selection as our new head coach. We couldn’t be more delighted to welcome her back to campus.” 

Reed has been a smashing success at Jackson State, with an overall record of 99-47. She has led the program to the regular season title in each of her five seasons at JSU, as well as three SWAC Tournament titles and NCAA Tournament appearances.

The Mississippi native’s contract ran out on March 31, meaning she is a free agent. With her most recent deal at Jackson State reportedly paying $135k per season, she should easily find a big raise somewhere — even if it is at Jackson State.

But why not Tennessee basketball ?
