Adrienne Shuler
Position:

Adrienne Shuler joined the GSU staff in 2010 after spending the previous two seasons with Baldwin-Tener at East Carolina.

Shuler served as head coach for six seasons at Appalachian State (2002-08).

Her 17 seasons of college coaching included seven years at Furman (1995-2002), one at Georgia College and State University and one at Oklaoosa-Walton C.C. She was the associate head coach at Furman for two years prior to being named the head coach at ASU and helped Furman win a Southern Conference crown and two NCAA bids.

As a collegiate player, Shuler was a point guard and team captain at the University of Georgia (1987-91), being named to the All-SEC team and being on the 1991 SEC Championship team.

East Carolina won 40 games in the two years that Shuler was on Baldwin-Tener's staff, including the 23-win season of 2009-10 in which ECU earned a WNIT postseason bid after posting the second-most wins in school history.

As the head coach, Shuler guided Appalachian State to a 15-13 mark in 2005-06 and 11-7 SoCon record to finish fourth, the school's best in almost a decade.

The Mountaineers' fourth-place finish in 2005-06 was their highest since a third-place showing almost a decade earlier in 1996-97.

One of her players, Kiki Conyers, moved into the top 10 in ASU history with 1,211 points and was All- Southern Conference, after coming in as the conference freshman of the year in 2002 in Shuler's opening campaign.

In seven years (1995-2002) at Furman, the Paladins were 114-85 (.573) and 73-43 (.629) in the SoCon as she spent her final two seasons there as the associate head coach for Sherry Carter. The Paladins won the Southern Conference regular season and tournament in 1997 to earn the NCAA bid. Furman repeated an NCAA bid in 2001.

In the summer of 1998, Shuler briefly left the Furman staff to play point guard for the Washington Mystics of the WNBA.

In those 25 games, she scored 89 points with a top game of 14. That 14-point game included a game-winning basket with 3.8 seconds to beat the Los Angeles Sparks.

Her coaching career began as a graduate assistant at Marshall University in 1992. The next year she got her first assistant job at Oklaoosa-Walton Community College in Niceville, Fla. Her third year and third stop was at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville.

A Dean's List student-athlete at Georgia, Shuler was an SEC Player-of-the-Week and the only Bulldog to earn the honor during the 1989-90 season for Coach Andy Landers. She was also part of the 1990 U.S. Olympic Select Team that toured Russia and Yugoslavia.

After graduation from Georgia, her first venture into coaching was as a graduate assistant at Marshall in 1992.

Shuler is a native of Bowman in Orangeburg County, S.C. She was a star high school player at Bowman High.
