Daedra Charles-Furlow Has Medical Problems

Tennessee assistant coach Daedra Charles-Furlow announced in a release after Tuesday night's 93-53 women's basketball victory over George Washington that she's dealing with medical issues that will impact her duties as the Lady Vols recruiting coordinator.

"It is possible that there may be times when I am unable to travel,'' Charles-Furlow said.

UT coach Pat Summitt said that Charles-Furlow will continue her coaching duties on the bench. Summitt also said in the release that she is designating her special assistant, Stephanie Glance, to help out on a temporary basis.

"Daedra is so passionate about recruiting our student-athletes," Summitt said.

"During the next several months she needs to be focusing on her health."

A former All-American for the Lady Vols, Charles-Furlow joined the Tennessee coaching staff in May of 2008. She replaced Nikki Caldwell, who left to become the head coach at UCLA.
