Chantelle Anderson enters her second season as an assistant coach at Virginia Tech.
Anderson, a former NCAA Division I standout and player in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA), previously served as an assistant coach at Palm Beach Atlantic where her responsibilities included on-court coaching, practice sessions, recruiting, travel and camps.
Anderson played six seasons in the WNBA and overseas while suiting up for the Sacramento Monarchs, San Antonio Silverstars, and the Atlanta Dream after being chosen as the second overall selection by the Monarchs in the 2003 WNBA Draft. While overseas, she took the court in countries such as France, Russia, Hungary, Lebanon and Turkey.
Before embarking on her professional career, Anderson was a four-year standout and three-time All-American at Vanderbilt University where she built a collegiate career into the all-time leading scorer in Lady Commodores history by tallying over 2,600 points.
In 2009, Anderson became the youngest member of the Vanderbilt Hall of Fame as part of the inaugural class of inductees. Anderson had her jersey retired on Feb. 13, 2011, joining Wendy Scholtens as the only two women's players to have their jerseys retired.
"After meeting Chantelle, I became totally convinced that all of her varied experiences and talent more than made up for her limited coaching background," said Wolff. "Her enthusiasm and personality will enable her to connect immediately with our players and prospects."
