Alum Candice Walker added to Loyola women’s basketball staff; Tom Pierce named executive director of Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation

Candice Walker, a Loyola Maryland graduate who played in 117 games during her career with the Greyhounds, is returning to her alma mater as an assistant coach with the women’s basketball team.

A Baltimore native who prepped at Towson Catholic High School and was an All-Metro honoree by The Baltimore Sun in 2007, Walker has spent the last six seasons at the University of Massachusetts where she was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator.

Last year, Walker was a recipient of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s prestigious Thirty Under 30 Award, Marriott Bonvoy & Morgan Stanley Global Sports, an honor that recognizes up-and-coming coaches at all levels of women’s basketball.
