Krista Gerlich will be named new coach at University of Texas at Arlington

Krista Gerlich will be introduced as the new coach of the University of Texas at Arlington in a press conference on Tuesday.

Krista Gerlich of Division II West Texas A&M will be named the new head coach at UT-Arlington. She will be replacing former head coach Samantha Morrow who left her position in February.

Earlier this year, Morrow stepped down once she learned that her contract was not going to be renewed.

At the time, athletic director Jim Baker stated, "I informed Coach Morrow that I was not going to renew her contract at the end of the season," Baker said. "Upon hearing that decision, she decided to step aside so that transition could begin as soon as possible.

"Samantha has been a valuable member of the UT Arlington community during her time here," Baker added. "We thank her for her contributions to the women’s basketball program and to the University. We wish her all the best."

Gerlich brings a considerable amount of success; she compiled a very impressive record during her seven-year tenure with the Lady Buffs: 168-53. Before her time at West Texas A&M, she served as an assistant at Texas Tech for three years.

She also was the starting guard alongside Sheryl Swoopes for the Lady Raiders when they won the National Championship in 1993.

A press conference is scheduled for noon next Tuesday.
