Erin Dickerson is in her third season at Georgetown after spending two years at Towson University, most recently as the associate head coach and recruiting coordinator.

Last year, Georgetown boasted a mark of 19-16 overall going 9-9 in BIG EAST play and winning eight of its final 10 games. The team made history advancing to the BIG EAST Tournament semifinals for the second-consecutive year, and made it to the Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) quarterfinals for the first time since 2009. Individually, Dionna White and Dorothy Adomako earned All-BIG EAST honors marking the fourth for both in their Georgetown careers.

In two years back on the Hilltop, she has been a part of teams that have posted two WNIT appearances as GU advanced out of the first round in both marking the first time since 2009. The Blue & Gray has also made two-consecutive trips to the BIG EAST Tournament semifinals. Over the past two years, she has coached four All-BIG EAST honorees as well as boasting the 2018 BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year in White and the 2018 BIG EAST Most Improved Player in Cynthia Petke.

Off of the court, she was selected to work with Sports Diplomacy taking a trip to Benin located in Africa for the Sports Envoy Program. There she hosted clinics for local youth, held leadership workshops, performed engagement, community outreach and taught female empowerment.

At Towson, Dickerson played a key role in the Tigers becoming the first Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) squad to sweep James Madison during the regular season since 2012. Under her watch, senior guard Raven Bankston earned a pair of All-CAA accolades after ranking second in the league in scoring. She was also named to the CAA All-Defensive Team. For her efforts, she was named to the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Thirty Under 30 presented by Marriott Rewards® honorees for the 2016-17 season. The program was created to recognize 30 up-and-coming women’s basketball coaches age 30 and under at all levels of the game.
Prior to Towson, Dickerson spent two years as an assistant at Illinois State. There she worked with the guards and helped recruit a junior college All-American and the 36th ranked point guard prospect in the nation. Dickerson also spent three years at La Salle as an assistant coach and served as the recruiting coordinator there for two of those three seasons. She began her coaching career at Furman.

The 2009 Northwestern graduate lettered all four years as a shooting guard in the Wildcat basketball program, seeing action in 112 games. As a senior she led Northwestern in 3-point shooting, converting 35 of 96 (36.5%), finishing in the top 10 in the Big 10 Conference.
