MONTEVALLO, Ala. – University of Montevallo women’s basketball head coach Cindy Hilbrich announced Thursday the hiring of Tiffany Morton as assistant coach. Morton comes to Montevallo after spending the previous two seasons as a graduate assistant coach at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater.

Her experience as a GA and as an All-American post player will be great additions to our program’s development. Tiffany will not only be a great coach on the floor, she will be a fantastic role model for our student-athletes.”
Morton served as the graduate assistant coach at UWW from 2010-12. While on the staff, the Warhawks had a 43-14 record and made two appearances in the NCAA Tournament. Morton assisted in recruiting, academic advising and on the court coaching.

Her team advanced to the NCAA Division III Final Four in 2009 and she was named to the Final Four All-Tournament Team. She was a Second Team All-Central Region selection as a junior and as senior and was also named First Team All-Conference both years.
