Texas Tech director of athletics Kirby Hocutt announced Tuesday that former Lady Raider Krista Gerlich has been hired as head coach of the school’s women’s basketball program.

She has been the Coach at UT-Arlington for the last seven years and was on the 1993 National Championship team coached by Marsha Sharp.

“I am excited to announce Krista Gerlich as our next Lady Raider basketball coach,” Hocutt said. “Coach Gerlich has been outstanding as a head coach at both UT-Arlington and West Texas A&M, and her track record as a student-athlete at Texas Tech speaks for itself. I believe that she is the right person to lead our women’s basketball team and I am excited to see what she and the Lady Raiders accomplish in the seasons ahead.”

Gerlich will replace Marlene Stollings after she was fired following some players accusing her of fostering a toxic and abusive environment.
