Her first job as an assistant coach was at Florida, where she continued her education with a Master of Science in exercise and sport science in 1997. After leaving her job with Florida in 1997, she coached at Austin Peay (1997-2001), and served as the associate head coach for former Charlotte head coach Katie Meier from 2001 to 2005.

Butler became the sixth head coach of the Charlotte 49ers women's basketball program on April 19, 2005. She was named Atlantic 10 Conference Coach of the Year after 20 wins and a share of the regular season championship in her first year as coach.
