ETSU women’s basketball coach Brittney Ezell signs a contract extension and earns another degree


(WJHL) – This weekend hundreds of men and women walked across the stage to get their diploma.

One of them was ETSU women’s head basketball coach Brittney Ezell, who got her doctorate in Global Sports Leadership on Saturday.

Ezell, who just signed a 5 year contract extension says she grateful for the commitment by the school and that it doesn’t matter if her players call her coach or doctor.

“It’s all about the E so it doesn’t matter coach E or doctor E I’ll answer to it that’s fine it’s just been the culmination of three years and a lot of hard work and you recognize it does take a village to be a successful student and somebody who’s working through their degree, lights on the Bucs during road trips that was me and when they were in study hall so was I so just really grateful everybody supported it.”
