Former North Carolina assistant Jessica Imhof is joining Maryland women’s basketball as its Director of Scouting and Player Development, the team announced over the weekend.
Imhof had a key role in the Tar Heels’ offense and special situations as she oversaw the program’s scouting responsibilities, organized and cut film, reviewed analytics and drew plays, per the Terps’ release. She will have similar duties at Maryland, overseeing its advanced scouting and game planning, organizing game film and assisting with practice preparation.
“She has built an incredible resume and is someone who will hit the ground running in our program,” Maryland head coach Brenda Frese said. “She’s a rising star.”
Imhof played four seasons of Division III basketball at The College of New Jersey, where she was a first-team All Conference member and a national semifinalist.
Upon graduating in 2012, she stayed on TCNJ’s bench as an assistant coach for a season before serving as a graduate assistant for Elmira College for two years. She then was an administrative assistant and video coordinator at Virginia Commonwealth University for three seasons and the Director of Basketball Operations at Princeton University for a year before making her way to Chapel Hill.
