Call and McMorris have combined for seven NCAA Tournament appearances throughout their women’s basketball careers.
Call comes to Stony Brook after spending the 2013-14 campaign as the Director of Player Development at the University of Washington, where he helped guide the Huskies to a 20-win season and berth in the WNIT Quarterfinals. The programs he has worked for have qualified for the NCAA Tournament five times, including trips to the NCAA Sweet 16 as the student manager for the University of Oklahoma in 2005-06 and 2006-07.
Call was the Director of Basketball Operations at Northwestern from 2011-13, where he was ran Joe McKeown Basketball Camps and supervised managerial staff, the video coordinator and interns.
“I am thrilled to have Adam on board,” McCombs said. “Having worked with him at Northwestern, I know he has a contagious work ethic and passion for the game of basketball. He brings a wealth of national postseason experiences with him, which will be vital as we look to secure America East titles and NCAA Tournament berths at Stony Brook.” 
Texas Christian University made a national postseason trip in each of Call’s three seasons as video coordinator, including the NCAA Tournament in 2008-09 and 2009-10. TCU claimed the Mountain West regular season title in 2009-10 and played in the WNIT in 2010-11. He began his career as a sophomore at the University of Oklahoma, where he served three seasons as the student manager from 2004-07. The Sooners claimed two Big XII tournament and regular season championships and went to the NCAAs every year. 

Call holds a B.A. in international area studies from the University of Oklahoma and a master’s degree in liberal arts from TCU.
McMorris, a former All-BIG EAST selection at Marquette, arrives at Stony Brook after working as a graduate assistant at UMass-Amherst last season. During her time with the Minutewomen, McMorris acted as the video coordinator, assisted with scouts and monitored study hall. 
“I am very excited to welcome McMorris to Stony Brook,” McCombs said. “She is a driven and goal-oriented individual. Her organizational skills, combined with her experiences playing a high level of Division I basketball, will make her a valuable resource for our coaches and student-athletes.”
During her standout career at Marquette, McMorris led the Golden Eagles to the NCAA Tournament in 2009-10 and 2010-11, advancing to the second round in 2010-11, and the 2007-08 WNIT Semifinals. A prolific 3-point shooter, she finished fourth in school history with a 37.1 3-point field goal percentage and competed in the 2011 State Farm Women’s 3-Point Shooting Contest. She was named second-team All-BIG EAST and the Golden Eagles’ Most Valuable Offensive Player as a senior and was a BIG EAST All-Academic honoree as a junior. 
McMorris coached Ring City, one of the top AAU programs in the country, which is currently named NY iExcel, under head coach Walter Welsh in 2012. As an assistant coach at Sussex Hamilton High School in Sussex, Wis., she helped the program win its first-ever Greater Metro Championship.
