Baney replaces Michael Fahey, who spent two seasons with the Lady Vols before joining the DePaul women's basketball program as video coordinator on Monday. Chicago is Fahey's hometown.
"I am extremely pleased to keep a quality person like Josh Baney on our staff," Warlick said. "He and Michael (Fahey) worked together closely, and he understands the technical aspects and the demands of the job. Josh has been part of this program for quite some time, and I believe he enables us to make a seamless transition with our video coordinator position and continue to further develop that area to the benefit of our coaches and players."
After serving as a graduate assistant for the 2012-13 season, Baney added the role of camp coordinator this summer but now will focus solely on managing the Lady Vols' tape exchange and breakdown of practice and game footage.
A native of Ventura, Calif., Baney attended Tennessee from 2001-05 and earned a bachelor's degree in sport management. From his sophomore year-on, he was a practice player for the Lady Vols, soaking up knowledge of the game from Holly Warlick and Pat Summitt while providing training competition for UT's women.
After graduation, Baney played a year of professional basketball in Ecuador in 2006 and also landed a job as varsity and junior varsity boys assistant basketball coach at Briarcrest Christian High School from 2005-2009 and again in 2011. While there, he helped Briarcrest to a TSSAA Division II state championship in 2008.
Baney's most recent stop in coaching came at Lambuth University in Jackson, Tenn., where he served as head assistant men's basketball coach in 2010-11. Among his roles there were serving as recruiting coordinator and handling basketball operations.
