July 17, 2009

CLEMSON, SC (clemsontigers.com) – Clemson Women’s Basketball Coach Cristy McKinney announced the addition of Christie Rogers as a Graduate Assistant Coach on Friday afternoon. Rogers, who hails from Davidsonville, MD, graduated in May 2009 with a degree in psychology from Washington College in Chestertown, MD. She will work toward a Master’s degree in Youth Development Leadership starting in the fall.

“We are excited to add a person with Christie’s experience to our staff,” McKinney said. “Having played for four coaches in four years of college, Christie has been exposed to many different philosophies and styles. She also has a Clemson connection as she interned under Clemson great Tree Rollins, while with the Washington Mystics.”

“I am excited to learn from coach McKinney and her excellent staff here at Clemson,” said Rogers. “I look forward to the future of Clemson women’s basketball. I will bring commitment, hard work, and my basketball knowledge to help move the team toward its goals.”

Although young, Rogers has had many valuable coaching experiences already. She worked with the Washington Mystics franchise in the 2008 season as a women’s basketball coach intern. She assisted the staff during planning, worked in drills, helped with scouting, and worked with the strength training staff as well.

Prior to her arrival at Clemson, Rogers played for three years at Washington College after transferring from St. Mary’s (MD) following her freshman season. As a member of the Shorewomen, Rogers played in 72 games, starting 25 of them, and was a captain in each of her three seasons with the team.

At Clemson, Rogers will be responsible for breaking down film and other video activities, as well as various office tasks. Additionally, she will be responsible for the coordination of gameday statistics and will aid in other analyses of team performance.
