Jermaine Woods joined the Wake Forest women's basketball team in June of 2017 as an assistant coach, and will primarily work with the guards and assist in all aspects of the program.

Woods joined the Deacs following a two-year stop a Old Dominion, where he served as an assistant coach and the recruiting coordinator for the Lady Monarchs. Under his watch as the recruiting coordinator, the 2016 class featured a ESPN top-100 prospect, a McDonald's All-American nominee and a signee who was the leading scorer on a team that ranked in the top 15 nationally, according to ESPNW.

Woods' 2017 class was the top-ranked recruiting class in the state of Virginia and featured an All-Star Girls Report top-100 prospect. Both of Woods' recruiting classes were the highest rated recruiting classes in Conference USA and both ranked in the top 43 nationally.

During the 2016-17 season, Woods helped coach guard Jennie Simms to honorable mention AP All-American honors as well as C-USA Player of the Year accolades. Simms was a three-time first team All-C-USA recipient and finished her career fifth all-time in scoring. She would go on to be the 18th overall pick in the 2017 WNBA Draft by the Washington Mystics.

No stranger to the ACC, Woods joined Old Dominion following a two-year stint as an assistant coach at Virginia Tech. Woods was responsible for bringing in a recruiting class that ranked 19th nationally by ESPNW, the highest-rated recruiting class in program history. The two top-50 signees both came from Woods' recruiting region as he established relationships with some of the top AAU programs in his area.

During his time at Old Dominion and Virginia Tech, Woods worked directly with the guards and post players, oversaw the academics of the student-athletes and coordinated the programs' involvement in the community.

As a player, Woods spent one season at Belmont Abbey College before playing his final three seasons at Christopher Newport University where he was a two-time first team All-Dixie Conference honoree. He was named the league's Newcomer of the Year award in his first year and broke the team's three-point record as a junior before topping his own record as a senior. He holds the Christopher Newport single-game, season and career records for three-pointers made.

A D3 Hoops All-American, Woods was a two-time conference tournament MVP, a two-time All-South Region second team honoree, the leading scorer on the only team in CNU history to advance to the Elite 8 and ended his career ranked 10th on the program's all-time scoring list. Following graduation, Woods spent time as a high school and AAU coach.
