Watkins Steps Down

Legendary Campbell Women’s Basketball head coach Wanda Watkins announced that she will be stepping down as the leader of the Lady Camels program on Wednesday.

Watkins served nearly four decades as Campbell both as a player and 35-year head coach here in Buies Creek, ending her coaching career with 549 all-time wins.


Watkins finishes out her career as just the 10th head coach in history to work at one institution for more than 30 years.

The 1979 Campbell graduate led her teams on the court to conference championship games on 10 occasions, winning the 1989 Big South and 2000 Atlantic Sun Conference tournament titles.

The Campbell University community showcased its tremendous support for coach Wanda Watkins as the news was dispersed and then consumed across social media.
