Graduating Year: 2008

Vic Schaefer believes he completed his inaugural Mississippi State coaching staff with one of the nation's up-and-coming young coaches when Brittany Hudson joined the Mississippi State coaching staff.

Schaefer was looking for a coach who brought a different dimension to the Bulldog coaching staff, and he found it in Hudson, who has gained experience coaching at both the collegiate and AAU levels of the sport. Judging by the success she has already enjoyed on the sidelines, Schaefer believes the addition of Hudson to the staff will make coaches around the nation take notice.

Hudson comes to Starkville after assisting at Daytona State College in her hometown Daytona Beach, Fla. During that season, she helped guide the Falcons to the 16th-best defense in NJCAA Division I after the squad held opponents to 53.6 ppg.

Working alongside 2012 Mid-Florida Coach of the Year Cal Cochran, Hudson helped tutor nine FCSAA all-conference players, including a league-high four first-team selections.

Prior to her season at DSC, Hudson spent a year as director of operations at Morehead State, coordinating travel as well as game-day management and other areas of the program. In that season, the Eagles advanced to the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament semifinals and finished with a 21-10 record, the best mark for a first-year coach in school history.

Her Division I experience came on the heels of a six-year stint at the AAU level coaching with the prestigious Essence girls basketball program. In addition to coaching the talented players in the program, she also arranged travel and served as site director for numerous tournaments.

Hudson earned a political science degree with a concentration in pre-law while playing for Georgia State University. As a freshman, she helped lead the Panthers to the Atlantic Sun Conference championship game prior to the program joining the Colonial Athletic Association.
During her GSU career, she scored 215 points and averaged nearly three rebounds in 70 games.

Hudson played her final college season at Valdosta State, averaging 11.4 points and nine rebounds per game. During that campaign, she earned second team All-Gulf South Conference accolades and helped guide the Lady Blazers to the NCAA Division II South Regional.

Hudson prepped one season at Mainland High School before finishing her high school career at Florida A&M University High School, where she led her team to the school's first state championship.
