Brooke Wyckoff is a former professional basketball player and a current interim coach for Florida State University. Wyckoff has a spectacular coaching history at Florida State University, as she was with the team since 2011. During her WNBA days, she played as a forward.
Early Life and Professional Career
Wyckoff was 5 years old when she discovered that basketball was her passion, as she always plays with her father. When she was 8, she assumed that she is already a basketball player because she was taller for her age. Because of her interest in basketball, she desired to play basketball in college, but to be included in the WNBA is not on her radar yet.
She was part of the 1999 World University Games that was held in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. At that time, the USA team had earned a silver medal with a 4-2 record. Wyckoff managed to record 7.0 points per game with 7.0 rebounds. She also had competed with the USA Basketball Women’s team in the 2000 Jones Cup and earned a gold medal.
Wyckoff has been a standout player since she was in college for Florida State University that’s why it was easy for her to penetrate the team as an assistant coach. In 10 years of being a professional basketball player, Wyckoff had extensive and detailed skills in defensive game planning, recruiting, and even coaching post players. In May 2018, she became Florida State University’s assistant head coach.
Wyckoff came from a Christian home, and she is very open about it. When she was playing at Florida State University under Coach Sue Semrau, she was surrounded by strong Christians. She started to struggle when she had to play overseas because she’s living on her own, and she was always meeting new people. She was thankful for her faith that when life throws things at her, God always pulls her back.
