McNeill is entering her third season as a member of Boyle's Virginia coaching staff, after also being a member of Boyle's staffs at Richmond and California. Before coming to Virginia, McNeill was an assistant coach at the University of Georgia from 2007-11. In her two seasons with the Cavaliers, McNeill helped lead the 2011-12 team to a 25-11 record with an appearance in the WNIT quarterfinals and was a key element in helping to sign an incoming 2013-14 freshman class that was ranked in the top-10 by multiple recruiting sites last season. While at Georgia, McNeill helped sign a pair of top-five ranked recruiting classes in 2008 and 2009.
"It has been a real pleasure for me to watch Kim's professional development over the years that I have known her," Boyle said. "After working alongside me to build three programs, I know she is deserving of the responsibilities of an associate head coach. She is a very gifted, passionate and genuine coach who has great energy on the court and is a tireless and extremely effective recruiter. I appreciate all that she has done for this program as an assistant coach and what she will bring to it in her new position."
As a player, McNeill was named the 1996 Big South Rookie of the Year while playing at Radford, before transferring to Richmond where she was a three-year letterwinner and co-captain. In 2000, she was named to the Colonial Athletic Association All-Defensive team. She received her bachelor's degree in sport science from Richmond in 2000.
The former Kim Hairston is married Virginia women's basketball assistant coach Cory McNeill. The couple gave birth to twins, Cayden and Gabrielle, on Jan. 4, 2013.
