New Hires, Promotions & Retirements

Justin Payne named Head Women's Basketball CoachJustin Payne

GSW has hired Justin Payne as its new head women's basketball coach, Director of Athletics Mike Leeder announced Monday afternoon.

Payne recently completed his eighth season as an assistant women's basketball coach and 10th year overall under head coach DoBee Plaisance at NCAA Division I Nicholls State University.

"I want to thank all of the people who were a part of this process," Payne said. "One thing that was really exciting about when I came on campus a week ago was the family atmosphere from all the coaches, from the administration. It was amazing. It was something similar to what we had at Nicholls. We know with that family atmosphere what you can do."

Georgia Southwestern President Dr. Neal Weaver agrees with Payne regarding what lies ahead for the program.

"I think the players will have a great time getting to know Coach and being a part of his program," Weaver said. "Our campus and the community of Americus, and the southwest region of Georgia will be thrilled and excited about what Coach Payne will be bringing to Georgia Southwestern. I look forward to watching the great things that are about to happen with our women's basketball program."
