Since she’s been at Tennessee, Cierra Burdick has seen her share of change.
First, longtime assistant Holly Warlick replaced coaching legend Pat Summitt as head coach. Since then, strength and conditioning coach Heather Mason has been relieved of her duties and athletic trainer Jenny Moshak suddenly retired this summer.
While the names, faces and roles change, Burdick’s attitude remains steadfast.
“I love every person that has come through this program,” the junior forward said.
Lee Taylor represents the latest change, replacing Mason this summer as the Lady Vols’ strength and conditioning coach.
“Obviously when you get somebody new, you have to welcome them in with open arms,” Burdick said. “That’s what we’ve tried to do with coach Lee. He’s done a fabulous job with getting us in here and getting us motivated and determined.”
Along with visiting Class of 2014 prospect Jatarie White, Tennessee’s coaches also are believed to have made in-home visits this week to three 2015 recruits: Point guard Asia Durr (Douglasville, Ga.), Wing Napheesa Collier (St. Louis) and guard Danni Williams (Clovis, N.M.).
Guard Gabby Green from Oakland is scheduled to make an official visit the weekend of Oct. 5, joining White, forward Alexis Jennings and guard Alexa Middleton.
