The former Tennessee women’s basketball player has been hired as a member of the coaching staff at John Carroll University, a private Jesuit Catholic school in University Heights, Ohio.
“I am thrilled to have Alicia be the first addition to this staff,” John Carroll first-year coach Kelly Morrone said in a school release. “It was important to our program to select a candidate that could be immediately impactful in a number of ways. Her nationally recognized playing experience as a forward for the Lady Vols has prepared her to direct our post players.”
Manning played in 139 games during her career at Tennessee (2008-12). She played on teams that won three SEC tournament championships and two SEC regular season titles. She was named to the SEC all-tournament team in 2011.
During her career, UT made two Elite Eight appearances in the NCAA tournament.
Manning founded and developed Alicia Manning Personal Development Training (AMP’D) in Knoxville, which was geared toward training boys and girls ages 8-17. The training involved basketball skills, speed and agility, strength and conditioning work, along with sport psychology consulting.
She conducted two camps this summer.
“She has the energy and personality to lead our recruiting efforts,” said Morrone. “I am looking forward to working with her and I’m excited for our players to have the opportunity to learn from such a decorated athlete.”
Manning graduated from UT in December of 2011 with a degree in sports management. She completed her masters degree in May of 2013.
