Former William & Mary assistant Janell Crayton is in her second year as an assistant coach with the Bulldog program. She is the Bulldogs recruiting coordinator.


"Janell has done a tremendous job in her first year as an assistant coach and more specifically as our recruiting coordinator on staff," stated Bulldog coach Brenda Mock Kirkpatrick. "We signed a fantastic 2013 class and are well on our way to another one for 2014. Recruiting is an essential piece to rebuilding this program and I know Janell has what it takes to spearhead our efforts for this staff. She also has a tremendous heart for leading our young ladies on and off the court and making an impact in each one of our student athletes' lives."


Crayton's duties with the Tribe program included film exchange, coordinating team travel, on-campus recruiting, team promotional activities, as well as other administrative responsibilities.


Crayton joined the William and Mary staff after working as an assistant coach at Colgate University in 2010-11.  While with the Raiders, her duties included recruiting, player development, scouting, travel, and special event planning.  On the court, Crayton helped work with and develop the Colgate post players.
