JMU assistant NC State bound

Kenny Brooks is in the market for a new assistant.

New NC State coach Wes Moore has snagged Lindsay Edmonds from JMU. Edmonds had assisted Brooks for the last four years as recruiting coordinator and given the potential of all the youth including CAA Freshman of the Year Precious Hall, she did a great job.

The Dukes boasted seven All-CAA selections with Edmonds on staff, boasting CAA Player of the Year Dawn Evans. In the last four years, JMU has twice advanced to the NCAA Tournament and twice to the WNIT, reaching the championship game last year.

We're assuming this means JMU will need a new football assistant, too. Edmonds is married to Ulrick Edmonds, a current football assistant for the Dukes.

A Winston-Salem native, Lindsay Edmonds formerly assisted and played at Appalachian State.

In other JMU news, Nikki Newman was granted a fifth year of eligibility for the NCAA. Newman, the 2012 CAA Defensive Player of the Year, missed all but nine games last season due to a foot injury.
