Pepperdine head coach Delisha Milton-Jones has announced her departure to become an assistant coach at Syracuse.

After two seasons as the head coach of the Pepperdine women’s basketball program, Delisha Milton-Jones has announced her departure to become an assistant coach at Syracuse University.

“With this being my first real job – because playing basketball definitely never felt like a job – being able to be employed by Pepperdine University has been an awesome experience,” Milton-Jones said. “It felt like an expedited course of learning in my short time here. I have a lot of appreciation for President Andy Benton and Athletic Director Steve Potts. They saw something in me, probably more than I saw in myself. They granted me an opportunity, and I really wanted to make sure that I made the most of that opportunity, one that I could look back and be proud of, but even more, for them to be proud. It’s definitely a good feeling that things have been turned around in a short period of time and that I’m leaving the program in a good position. We’ve had exponential growth and that shows the commitment that these young women and the coaching staff have all had.

“Heading to Syracuse is a stepping stone toward something greater. What that is, I don’t know yet, but for anyone who wants to be more skilled in their craft, it will serve me well to be put in a position to learn from the best. Me being a young coach, I’ve been leaning on my own understanding from playing 17 years in the WNBA and being an Olympian. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge. But sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know. And you need to put yourself out there and learn other perspectives, and learn from those who have been there and done that. I think I’m heading to a position that will afford me the luxury of being able to position myself to learn more, be more, experience more and become more of a complete coach.”
