LOS ANGELES — Oxy assistant women's basketball coach Amanda Mills is headed to North Carolina A & T to be the Director of Player Development for the women's basketball team. She will be in charge of strength and conditioning, and nutrition for the Aggies.
"I am incredibly proud of Amanda. She worked tirelessly and selflessly for our program for the last four seasons and really developed as a strength and conditioning coach," Oxy head women's basketball coach Anahit Aladzhanyan said. "Amanda loves the grind and preparation it takes to compete at a high level, and the opportunity to be the Head Strength Coach for the Women's Basketball at North Carolina A&T couldn't be a more perfect fit."
Mills spent the past four years with the Oxy women's basketball team and women's soccer team, and also played a big role in the strength and conditioning of Oxy athletes from multiple sports.
"I want to thank all of the athletes I've had the opportunity to work with and all of the people who supported and mentored me throughout the way," Mills said.
Mills came to Oxy after spending the previous three years coaching high school and club basketball in Oregon. As a high school coach, Mills oversaw guard development, film breakdown, social media, and directed the strength and conditioning program.
Mills playing career began at San Diego Mesa College, where she was named to the First-Team All-PCC. She then transferred to NCAA Division I Presbyterian College, where she served as a captain for three years and left the program ranked 1st in career points scored.
Mills graduated from Presbyterian with a degree in both Biology and History. She is looking to pursue a Masters in Kinesiology, and is CSCS certified.Follow Oxy Athletics on Twitter Sign Up for Newsletters Watch on Youtube Follow us on Instagram
