Brooks appoints Camille Collier to women’s basketball staff Friday as assistant coach

BLACKSBURG – Head Coach Kenny Brooks announced the addition of Camille Collier to the Virginia Tech women's basketball staff Friday afternoon. Collier, a former standout at Wake Forest, comes to Blacksburg from Hofstra where she had been a member of the Pride for two seasons as an assistant coach, while also serving as the program's recruiting coordinator.
"I am extremely excited about the addition of Camille to our Hokie family," Brooks said of Collier. "I've known Camille for a long time and I've admired her attitude, work ethic and knowledge for the game of basketball. She will be a tremendous asset to the program."
In 2020-21 Collier helped develop two Hofstra All-CAA selections, JaKayla Brown (Second Team) and Jahsyni Knight (Defensive Team).
"I am very grateful to Coach Brooks for the opportunity to join his staff," Collier said. "He has built Virginia Tech into a consistent winner and I am eager to join him as he continues to take the program to new heights. I can't wait to be a part of Hokie Nation!" 
She joined the Hofstra women's basketball program after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Radford University where she helped guide the Highlanders to a 50-15 overall record, the best two-year mark in program history.
Radford put together one of the greatest campaigns in program history in 2018-19, going 26-6 overall and 17-1 in Big South play, clinching the regular season title and top seed in the Big South Tournament. Collier and the Highlanders went on to win the Big South Championship and earn a bid to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 23 years. One season earlier, Collier's first season with Radford, was also a historic one as the Highlanders posted a 24-9 overall record while going 15-3 in conference play. Radford made its second-straight WNIT appearance and defeated Big Ten foe, Penn State for its third postseason win in program history.
Prior to her stop at Radford, Collier spent four seasons as an assistant coach at Jacksonville. In the spring of 2016, she was elevated to recruiting coordinator. Prior to her promotion, Jacksonville claimed its first-ever Atlantic Sun Conference Championship while appearing in the NCAA tournament.
As a student-athlete at Wake Forest, Collier wrapped up her playing career in 2012, helping the Demon Deacons to a 20-win season while reaching the second round of the WNIT. She was named to the Atlantic Coast Conference All-Academic Team as a freshman when she led ACC rookies with her 8.2 points per game scoring average and also earned a spot on the ACC Honor Roll two other times. After finishing her career as a Demon Deacon, Collier served as a graduate assistant coach at Georgia State.

A native of Washington, D.C., Collier earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from Wake Forest in 2011 and a master's degree in education in 2012.
