Kenny Anderson Hired as Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Lynn University head women’s basketball coach Niki Washington announced the addition of Kenny Anderson as assistant coach on Tuesday. Anderson joins a program that went 12-15 overall, 7-9 in the Sunshine State Conference and returns four starters.
“I’ve known Kenny for over six years and since day one, his passion and thirst for basketball knowledge has been evident,” said Washington. “Kenny will bring new energy and fire to the sidelines and I know that he will demand the most out of the girls.”
The Jacksonville, Fla., native will be responsible for all phases of recruiting, development of guard play, in-game game strategies, film exchange and the coordination of team camps.
“Kenny will also be asked to head our strength and conditioning efforts, in addition to his work to develop our guards,” Washington added. “He is very passionate about coaching and I feel he’ll be a great fit for our program. Whatever he lacks in experience he makes up for in hard work and intelligence.”
Anderson joins the Fighting Knights after a successful high school coaching career where he served as head coach the past two years at Kings Junior High and assistant coach at Lawton Chiles High School. He lead Kings to a pair of conference championships and helped Lawton Chiles women’s basketball team to the first winning season in school history and a FHSAA Class 4A District Title.
Graduating with his bachelors of science in electrical engineering from Florida A&M University 2010, Anderson worked with the Rattler’s coaching staff as a sophomore and junior, assisting in practice preparation and scouting. Prior to joining FAMU he was a four-year letterwinner in basketball at Stanton College Prep High School and a state finalist in the 300-meter hurdles.
