Mason becomes newest member of coaching staff as graduate assistant

Head coach Todd Buchannan added a second former player to his coaching staff Tuesday.

Buchannan announced that Brittany Mason will serve as a graduate assistant. Less than a week ago former forward Chandi Jones was added as a video coordinator.

“It’s priceless to have a situation where we can have two former greats come back and serve on our staff,” Buchanan said in a release. “Not only do they both have degrees, but they also have the experience of winning a championship and playing in the NCAA Tournament, which are experiences that can’t be replaced as we continue to carry on a great tradition.”

Mason helped the Cougars complete a perfect season in Conference USA (16-0), and a 26-6 record overall.

Mason averaged 5.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in 29.6 minutes of play.

“Brittany brings incredible class to our program, which she was a huge part of for the last four years,” Buchanan said. “She was the glue for the championship team a year ago, and I’m blessed to have her on our staff to continue that leadership.”

Mason earned her bachelor’s degree in health and is currently working on her master’s of education.
