Coleman wrapped up her undergraduate career at neighboring Vanderbilt University this past Spring and will complete her final year of eligibility with the Bruins beginning in 2012.
"I've had an amazing run at Vanderbilt and would not take back that experience but every chapter of life comes to an end and unfortunately, that chapter has ended. I now wish to pursue my master's degree at Belmont in pursuit of my career," Coleman said.
"Thankfully, I have an additional year of eligibility and Belmont has welcomed me with open arms with an opportunity to play again and earn another prestigious degree. So with that said, I am super excited to start a new journey with Coach Ezell and the Belmont Bruins!"
Due to NCAA Transfer Regulations, Coleman will be able to take the hardwood in the fall with the Bruins while pursuing her master's in Organizational Leadership and Communication at Belmont.
Coleman will add leadership, depth and experience to a Bruin squad that experienced an outstanding turnaround in just its second year under the leadership of head coach Brittney Ezell. Belmont earned the No. 3 seed heading into the 2012 Atlantic Sun Tournament after compiling an 11-7 league mark after the previous season finishing sixth in the conference race.
"We are thrilled to have Jordan Coleman join our program in 2012-2013 while in pursuit of her master's degree. Her experience at Vanderbilt University in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) will be an invaluable asset to our young roster in terms of her leadership capabilities, physical toughness and competitive spirit," Ezell said.
"She is a tireless worker and a very driven student-athlete. I have no doubt that Jordan will make an immediate impact for Belmont University as a graduate student, player and leader. We are honored that she has chosen to continue her career as a Belmont Bruin."
