Gramblinite named coach at Louisiana State

BATON ROUGE – LSU women’s basketball head coach Van Chancellor has completed his coaching staff with the addition of Yolanda Wells-Broughton and Travis Mays.
“These two coaches are just what we were looking to complete this staff,” Chancellor said.
Prior to her time spent at TCU, Wells-Broughton served as an assistant coach at Trinity Valley Community College for four seasons and was the head coach at Paul Quinn College in Dallas for two seasons.
Wells-Broughton earned a psychology degree from Grambling State University in 1995 and received a master’s in sports administration in 1997.
The Houston native earned all-conference honors while at Grambling after being named a Kodak All-American during her playing days at Howard Junior College.
At GSU, Wells-Broughton helped the Lady Tigers earn their first NCAA Tournament bid in 1994.
“I am very excited about being here,” Wells-Broughton said. “This is an opportunity of a lifetime to work with Coach Chancellor, Coach Starkey and Travis Mays and the entire LSU staff. I have always felt like this would be a dream job for me and with Coach Chancellor providing me with this opportunity, it is truly a blessing for me and my family.
