AUSTIN, Texas — A former Longhorn basketball star has joined head basketball coach of the Texas women's basketball program Karen Aston’s staff.

One of the greatest players in program history, Tiffany Jackson is joining Aston’s staff as an assistant coach to help with the post-players. She was hired to replace Tina Thompson on the UT women’s staff on Monday.

As a professional, she played for three WNBA teams — New York, Tulsa and Los Angeles. She also played in a professional league in Israel from 2012-18.

Will Sherratt had a chance to catch up with Jackson about her official return to Austin.
