2016-2017 BASKETBALL (W) COACHES
Tenicha Gittens was named head coach of the Concordia Stingers women's basketball program on July 14, 2015.
A native of Montreal, Gittens enjoyed a very successful Cégep career as an all-star guard with the Dawson Blues (1999-2002). She went on to play one year at Eastern Arizona Junior College before moving to Hofstra University, a Division 1 program in Hempstead, N.Y. She played one season with the Pride and graduated from Hofstra in 2007 with a Bachelor of Business Administration, Marketing.
After a brief internship in marketing, Gittens launched her coaching career. Initially a high school coach, she quickly caught on with McGill University as an assistant with the women's program.
Her devotion to developing her coaching skills took her to three Division 1 NCAA institutions, beginning with LaSalle University where she was Director of Basketball Operations in 2010. She moved to St. Francis University in 2012 to take on an assistant coaching role and then spent the last two years as the recruiting co-ordinator and assistant coach at Howard University.
