"This is one of those days where you hope it would come, but you hope it wouldn’t come for all the right reasons. This is the right time for Jamelle. She is more than ready to take on this challenge. There isn’t and aspect of this job that she isn’t prepared for. The kids will love her and the fans will love how hard her kids will work and the style of play. There is a lot of sadness in Storrs, Connecticut, today, but a lot of joy for Jamelle personally for her getting this opportunity. I don’t know that I’ve been around a better coach."
- Geno Auriemma, UConn head coach

"I am thrilled for Jamelle and think this is a fantastic hire for Cincinnati. I played with her for three years and we learned from the best in Coach Auriemma. I could see even then that she had the passion and fire that lends itself to being a great head coach. My litmus test, now that I have kids, is would I want my daughter to play for this head coach and when it comes to Jamelle, the answer is a resounding yes."
- Rebecca Lobo, former teammate and current ESPN women’s basketball analyst

"Cincinnati could not have chosen a better person to head their women’s basketball program. Jamelle has six national championships, one as a player and five as a coach. Not many people have that type of resume. She knows how to win and will have a positive impact on the Bearcats players. She is a dear friend and I’m proud that she is about to embark on this new chapter in her life."
- Tonya Cardozza, Temple head coach

"Jamelle understands the game and knows what it takes to win at a high level, but more than that, she is a wonderful person who helped me both on and off the court during my time at Connecticut. She helped so many young women develop personally and that is an attribute she will bring to Cincinnati. UC is getting a real winner with the hiring of Jamelle."
- Swin Cash, member of WNBA’s Seattle Storm


 

 

"Jamelle Elliott is a great fit for UC. Combining her UConn bloodline with her past success in recruiting Ohio gives UC the positive shot in the arm the program needed. Ohio produces 65 to 80 D-I signees per year. It has been 3 years since UC, the second-largest enrollment school in this state, has signed a player from Ohio. I expect this change dramatically with Coach Elliott at the helm, beginning no later than with the 2011 class if not next year with the 2010s. In Ohio, there are 25 to 30 "centers of influence" within the game of girls basketball. Coach Elliott in her first days has aggressiviely sought out the support of several of these folks already. She understands that to get the support of folks in Ohio that she has to first make a commitment to the state."
- Tom Jenkins, Executive Director of Ohio Girls Basketball Report

"Jamelle Elliott defines the meaning of success. From an undersized post player from the D.C. area to leading young women to multiple championships, she has made her mark as an assistant coach. She is loyal, responsible, battle-tested, and an all around great person. It is time for her to be a head coach. The world is hers."
- Tamika Williams-Raymond, Kansas assistant coach

"Jamelle Elliott is an extraordinary talent who will provide great energy for the University of Cincinnati. She is going to be a tremendous recruiter and will engage the campus and the people around the program She has worked under one of the best coaches in women’s basketball and has had a lot to do with that program’s success and I know she will bring those same talents to Cincinnati. This is truly a great hire."
- Floyd Keith, Executive Director of Black Coaches Association

"Coach Elliott has a knack of getting you to do things you didn’t think you could do. She had a lot of confidence in me and works really hard to bring the confidence out in her players. She takes things personally and has strong relationships with all of her players."
- Tina Charles, Connecticut center and 2009 Final Four Most Outstanding Player
