First-year Texas Tech Lady Raider basketball coach Krista Gerlich finalized the program’s coaching and support staff on Monday.
“I couldn’t be more excited and confident in the staff that we have put together to lead Lady Raider Basketball back to prominence,” Gerlich said. “We have veterans who have recruited and won at the highest level, along with some of the best and brightest up-and-coming stars in our profession who are all equipped for the challenge ahead.
“I’ve always been told to surround myself with good people and good things will happen; well, I couldn’t have better PEOPLE around me. They are extremely hard workers, they operate with the upmost integrity and they all have a unified calling to be servant leaders. This Lady Raider coaching staff has what it takes to attract high quality players, coach and win in high-level games while positively impacting the lives of our student-athletes, Texas Tech University and the community of Lubbock. We are finally complete and already implementing positive change within the Lady Raider program.”
Associate head coach JC Carter and assistant coach/recruiting coordinator Ashley Crawford, as well as chief of staff Jared Boyd and director of operations Jordan Vessels come to Tech after serving on Gerlich’s staff at UT Arlington. Assistant coach Eric Ely joins the Lady Raider program after 10 seasons at Oregon State.
