Jermaine Woods
Position: Assistant Coach
Hometown: Norfolk, Va.
Alma Mater: Christopher Newport, '03
Experience: 2 Years

Jermaine Woods enters his second season as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for the Old Dominion women's basketball team.

Woods was the head coach at Maury High School in Norfolk, Virginia, for three seasons before spending the the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons as an assistant on the Virginia Tech women’s basketball staff.

"Jermaine is a go-getter and an outstanding recruiter," said head coach Karen Barefoot at the time of Woods' hiring. "We welcome Jermaine and his family as they return home to Hampton Roads, where he has achieved success as a player, high school coach and AAU coach.”

Last year, Corrigan helped guide the Lady Monarchs to a 17-17 overall record and a 10-8 mark in Conference USA play. ODU concluded the season winning five of its last six games, which featured a run to the C-USA title game before falling to eventual champion Middle Tennessee. During the tournament run, the Lady Monarchs upset top-seeded UTEP. 

Prior to ODU, Woods joined the Virginia Tech women’s basketball staff as an assistant coach in July 2013. He helped sign the Hokies' 2014-15 recruiting class, which was ranked No. 20 by ESPN HoopGurlz.

“I am excited to return to my hometown and have an opportunity to work at Old Dominion University,” exclaimed Woods when he joined the ODU staff. “As a child, I remember attending men and women’s basketball games at the Scope and Field House, now I get a chance to be a part of the ODU family. I am grateful and honored to be able to work beside one of the hardest working coaches in our profession, Karen Barefoot. I have known Karen for almost 15 years and her dedication and passion to build the Old Dominion women’s basketball program and help grow the game is unparalleled.”

Woods arrived at Virginia Tech after three seasons as a head coach at Maury High School, where he led the team to a 61-18 record and berths in the regional finals. Woods also coached the Boo Williams AAU 17U and the Under B Team, where 21 students-athletes earned scholarships in his three years as head coach.

Prior to his coaching days, Woods was a standout athlete at Christopher Newport University where he was a two-time first team All-Dixie Conference selection and earned the league’s Newcomer of the Year award. Woods set Christopher Newport’s three-point record as a junior and broke the record again as a senior in 2003. Woods also competed professionally in Poland. The Virginia native graduated from Norfolk State with a degree in business management in 2011.

Woods and his wife Natasha have three children, Jermaine, Nyjae and Kerrington.
