Singleton joins the Blue Hens from her alma mater, Duquesne, where she spent the last two seasons as the Director of Basketball Operations and Administration.
In her role at UD, Singleton will primarily work with the team’s post players.

A 2008 graduate of Duquesne, Singleton was a team captain and started all 30 games for the Dukes during her senior campaign. Additionally, she finished the season with a team-high 202 rebounds, which was 10th-best in the Atlantic 10.
Singleton replaces Tiara Malcom, who joined the Florida International coaching staff as the top assistant coach in June.
