Huntsville, Ala. – Head Coach Roy Heintz and the UAH women’s basketball program announced the hiring of Amber Lee to be the team’s next assistant coach. Lee comes to the Rocket City after spending three seasons as an assistant at Maryville College in Maryville, Tenn.

“I’m very excited to have Amber Lee join my staff,” said Heintz. “She is a rising star in this profession – with a great  basketball IQ at such a young age, a hunger to learn more, a strong teacher on the floor, and an incredibly hard worker in everything she does.”

Lee was a four-sport athlete in high school – she participated in basketball, golf, softball and track – before she played basketball for the Scots.

After graduating in 2009, Lee served as an assistant at Berry College and returned to Maryville as a member of the coaching staff the following season, and the Scots were quite successful during the next three seasons, employing a system similar to that of the Lady Chargers.

“She comes to us from a championship program that was 66-17 over the past three seasons and from an offensive system that is nearly identical to the system we’ve used,” stated Heintz. “Her great personality has made her a talented proven recruiter, and her teaching and hard work has brought her success on the basketball court.”

In addition to her duties as the assistant women’s basketball coach, Lee also served as a game event manager for football, soccer and volleyball.
