"I'm very excited and blessed to have the opportunity to serve the Jets Family as the head assistant coach of the women's basketball program," said Milton. "I believe our team needs someone who will be passionate about the program and who will help them reach all of their goals as student-athletes in the classroom, in the community, as well as on the basketball court. I'm looking forward to filling this important role and I'm grateful of the opportunity."
"I am looking forward to building relationships with the administration, alumni, supporters, and current players. Our program will continue to produce quality student-athletes that will represent Northern Oklahoma College-Enid well, on and off the floor. I can't wait to hit the ground running and continue the excellence that Coach Morris has had here."
