MANHATTAN, Kansas (Kansas State Athletics) – K-State head coach Jeff Mittie has added to his support staff for the 2022-23 season, as he has selected Kacie Jones as the Director of Women’s Basketball Administration.

“We are excited to add Kacie to our staff this season,” said Mittie about the program’s newest addition. “She has been on our coaching radar for a couple of years now if the right situation presented itself. I am looking forward to her beginning to work with our staff and our players.”

Jones will be responsible for a number of administrative duties within the program including: coordinating staff and team travel and logistics, money and budget management, manage all home game logistics, on-campus recruiting logistics, training table coordination, camp/clinic budgets, daily office operations, and direct program contact for all other KSA departments.

Prior to joining K-State women’s basketball, Jones was an assistant coach at her alma mater, Wayne State, from 2020 to 2022.

Before returning to Wayne State, Jones served as a graduate assistant coach at Northwestern College in Iowa, helping the Red Raiders women’s basketball team to a 17-11 overall record, while coaching four players to All-GPAC honors.

Jones played four seasons (2014-18) of basketball and track and field at Wayne State College. During her time as a Wildcat, Kacie scored 754 points and led the Wildcats in three-point shooting as a junior and senior. She was also a two-time NSIC All-Academic honoree, while serving as team captain for two years.

In track and field, Jones claimed the 2016 NSIC Outdoor discus title with a throw of 158′ 7″ earning All-NSIC honors. Her efforts resulted in becoming a 2016 National Qualifier in the discus, where she finished 18th with a throw of 141′ 11″. Her success in the ring earned herself USTFCCCA All-Region and All-Academic honors as a senior.

A native of Sundance, Wyoming, Jones earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education from Wayne State College in 2018 and a master’s degree in education from Northwestern College in 2021.
