Missouri State women’s basketball assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Jennifer Sullivan is expected to join Ohio State’s staff as an assistant coach, a source confirmed to The Dispatch on Tuesday.
Sullivan’s hire is pending completion of Ohio State’s HR process.
Sullivan has been with Missouri State for five seasons. The Bears posted a winning record in all but one.
Before her time at Missouri State, Sullivan spent a season as the associate head coach at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette and three seasons as an assistant and recruiting coordinator at Arkansas State.
A three-year starter at Memphis, she graduated in 2005 and spent time on the Rhodes College (Division III) and Memphis staffs before heading to Arkansas State.
She scored 800 points and had 310 rebounds and 99 steals for the Tigers from 2001-05 and earned team MVP honors as a senior.
Sullivan fills the position on coach Kevin McGuff’s staff vacated by Mark Mitchell. Mitchell, the father of four-time Ohio State all-American guard Kelsey Mitchell, resigned this month after four seasons to pursue other opportunities.
Associate head coach Patrick Klein and assistant coach Carrie Banks remain on staff.
