Tulsa, Oklahoma - University of Tulsa Head Women's Basketball Coach Matilda Mossman announced today the appointment of Kelley Waters to the position of director of player development/team manager.

"Kelley's past experiences will allow us to branch out and do more in terms of reaching out to alumni, assist in marketing and help us create more of an awareness for our program," Mossman said. "She is highly organized, which will help us in our recruiting. I feel like we have a really cohesive staff in place and I think Kelley's addition will only help enhance it even more."

Waters came to Tulsa following six years as assistant girls' basketball coach at Shiloh Christian School, working with grades 7-12. During her tenure, the varsity team compiled a six-year record of 164-36, made six state tournament appearances, won three regional championships, three conference titles and two Class 4A state championships in 2009 and 2011.

Before that, Waters spent four seasons (2001-05) as the Director of Basketball Operations for the University of Arkansas women's basketball program. The Lady Razorbacks made two NCAA Tournament appearances (2002, 2003) and one NIT appearance (2001) during her tenure.

In 1997, Waters began a two-year graduate assistantship with the Hardin-Simmons University women's basketball program.

Waters has also held positions in television, Fayetteville (Ark.) Public Schools and as a communications intern with the LPGA and communications coordinator with the Northern Texas Section of the Professional Golfers' Association of America.

A 1993 graduate of TCU, Waters earned her bachelor's degree in television production with a minor in art. She received her master's degree in sports & recreation management from Hardin-Simmons in 1999.
