Coach Jamaican Shake?

Storm original Simone Edwards, who retired in May 2006, was announced as a women’s assistant coach for Radford University today. Edwards played six seasons with the Storm, averaging 7.4 points in each of the team’s first two seasons, 2000 and 2001. She left the organization ranked third in rebounding (624) and fourth in points (936), playing a critical role as a reserve in helping the Storm win its 2004 title.
Edwards, 33, checked in from her Florida home earlier this week and said life is peachy. She’s preparing to play in the Pan-American Games in Brazil next month with her Jamaican national team. She most recently played overseas in Hungary.
“I love teaching the game,” Edwards said in a released statement. “I was given the opportunity to get a scholarship, play basketball on every level and learn from some of the best coaches in the world. Now I would like to take all of the knowledge I gained throughout the years and give back by teaching young athletes the game of basketball.”
Edwards has always been a favorite with the youth, especially when she did her signature “Jamaican Shake” with the Storm’s mascot, Doppler, during player introductions.
