Kim Austin joins the Rice staff after serving as an assistant Southern Polytechnic State in Marietta, Ga.
With the Lady Hornets of the NAIA, she was charged with coaching the post players in addition to serving as recruiting coordinator, scheduling coordinator and supervisor for weight training and conditioning.
Prior to working with Southern Poly, Austin spent one year as an assistant with Life University, also in Marietta, Ga, after a two-year stint at Saint Louis University. She organized team travel, coordinated the film exchange and aided in recruiting in addition to her on-court coaching duties with both programs.
Austin is a 1998 graduate of Colorado State with a B.A. in social sciences and a minor in sociology. She was a four-year letterwinner for the Rams, helping them to the Western Athletic Conference regular season and tournament titles, then the program's first NCAA tournament bid in 1996. As a senior captain, Austin led Colorado State to the WAC Mountain Division title and a trip to the NCAA tournament second round in 1998.
