Birmingham, Ala (WIAT/Samford Athletics) — Samford University has hired Carley Kuhns as its new head women’s basketball coach. “It’s a dream come true, I’m honored and truly blessed to be here today. It’s a great place and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of the Samford family,” Kuhns said.
Kuhns comes to Samford after spending the last three seasons as the head coach as Valdosta State University. In her three seasons at VSU, Kuhns posted a record of 66-29. She led her teams to two NCAA Tournament apperances, including a Sweet 16 appearance in 2018 and one Gulf South Conference Tournament title in 2017.
Kuhns said, “That’s really important to me is building relationships with them as people first and gaining a really strong foundation of trust with this team.” She becomes the third head coach in the Lady Bulldogs history.
