COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - South Carolina Women's Basketball Coach Dawn Staley was named an honorary deputy Tuesday with the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said Coach Staley has been generous with volunteering her time to support the youth programs of the Sheriff's Department.

Lott said Staley has always been interested in law enforcement, and this has become a way for her to live out that dream, and be a part of the Sheriff's Department family.
