Former Charlotte assistant reunites with Consuegra in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE – Marquette University women's basketball head coach Cara Consuegra tabbed Deont'a McChester as an assistant coach for the program on Friday.

McChester comes to Milwaukee after spending one season on Consuegra's staff at Charlotte.

"I am thrilled to continue my coaching journey with Deont'a and welcome him to Marquette," Consuegra said. "Deont'a is an elite recruiter and developer of people first. He takes great pride in mentoring student athletes and preparing them for life after basketball. His exceptional knowledge of the game and high energy will also have a positive impact on the program. I am confident in Deont'a's abilities and believe he will help us win and move this program forward."

McChester came to Charlotte after spending three seasons on staff at Georgia Southern, where he was promoted to associate head coach before the 2022-23 season.

"I am really honored that Cara has trusted me to join her at Marquette," McChester said. "I am a true believer in Cara and her vision she has for Marquette women's basketball. This is a great opportunity for us to represent the Marquette brand and compete for championships in the BIG EAST Conference."

While at Georgia Southern, McChester was also tabbed with recruiting coordinator duties. The Eagles ranked among the national leaders in steals and forced turnovers per game with McChester on the sideline.

McChester was an assistant at Tennessee State from 2017-20. He has head coaching experience with Clafin University in South Carolina for four seasons and with the Flint City Monarchs of the WBCBL for three seasons.
