Kim McNeill was named an assistant coach at UVa in May 2011. Virginia finished the 2011-12 season with a 25-11 overall record, the most wins since a 25-win season in 1999-2000. The Cavaliers advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2012 Women's National Invitation Tournament (WNIT).
McNeill is a native of Bassett, Va., and has been a member of Boyle's staffs at Richmond, California and now UVa. Before coming to Virginia, McNeill was an assistant coach at the University of Georgia from 2007-11. During that period the Lady Bulldogs participated in four-consecutive NCAA Tournaments and advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 in both 2010 and 2011.
On the recruiting trail, McNeill helped Georgia ink 2008 and 2009 recruiting classes that were ranked among the nation's top five.
McNeill was selected to attend Nike's Villa 7 Coaches Consortium for three-consecutive years (2009-11) and the Achieving Coaching Excellence (ACE) Program in 2003. Prior to serving as an assistant at Georgia, McNeill spent two seasons on Boyle's staff at California (2005-07). The Golden Bears earned back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths and compiled a 41-21 record in those two seasons.
McNeill was also a member of Boyle's staff at Richmond, her alma mater. In 2005 the 23-8 Spiders received their first NCAA berth in 14 seasons. Prior to her time at Richmond, McNeill worked three seasons (2000-01 and 2002-04) at James Madison, including the Dukes' run to the 2001 Women's National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) semifinals. In between her time at JMU, McNeill was an assistant coach at Howard University.
The 1996 Big South Rookie of the Year while playing at Radford, McNeill transferred to Richmond where she was a three-year letterwinner and co-captain. In 2000 she was named to the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) All-Defensive team.
McNeill received her bachelor's degree in sport science from Richmond in 2000.
McNeill and her husband, fellow assistant coach Cory McNeill, are the proud parents of a twin son and daughter, Cayden and Gabrielle, who were born Jan. 4, 2013.
