Director of Recruiting Operations/Administration

Dawn Staley added Mary Wooley to the South Carolina staff in Summer 2017 to solidify the program's recruiting efforts. It is Wooley's second time on Staley's staff after getting her start at Temple as a graduate extern and director of basketball operations before spending the next eight seasons on the coaching staffs of three other programs.

Most recently, Wooley was an assistant coach at Loyola (Md.) in 2016-17, following four seasons at Hawaii (2012-16), including the last three as the associate head coach. She helped the Rainbow Wahine to the postseason all four seasons of her tenure, including the 2016 NCAA Tournament after they won the Big West Conference Tournament. Wooley's first college coaching position came as an assistant coach at Southern Cal. In her three seasons in Los Angeles (2009-12), the Women of Troy went 61-37 overall and were the WNIT runner-up in 2010.

After Wooley's own basketball career at USC Aiken closed with her 2002 graduation with a bachelor's degree in experimental psychology, Staley welcomed her to the Temple staff (2003-09) as Wooley pursued her master's in counseling psychology, which she completed in 2005. She served as the program's director of basketball operations for three of the six seasons she was on Staley's staff.
