THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING YOLETT MCPHEE-MCCUIN
Yolett McPhee-McCuin is the head coach of the Ole Miss women’s basketball program. Coach Yo, as she’s known by many, helped the Lady Rebels to 15 wins and a runner-up finish in the Women’s NIT in 2021.
She arrived at Ole Miss after serving as head coach at Jacksonville University for five seasons, leading the program to an NCAA tournament berth in 2016. She’s also had coaching stops at Clemson, Pittsburgh and Arkansas Pine-Bluff.
McPhee-McCuin is the first Bahamian woman to coach at a Division I program, and was the first Black female head coach at Jacksonville. She has also been inducted into two halls of fame for both her playing and coaching career — the Bahamian Athletic Hall of Fame in 2016 and the New England Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013.
Today on the podcast, Coach Yo shares her desire to serve and love the players she coaches, how God has guided her life, viewing coaching as her ministry, and being transformational instead of transactional.
The Bravest thing you can do is Believe in yourself! And sometimes you need to get outside of your element to believe in yourself! -Kevin Gates
