Is Texas Tech Interested In UTEP’s Keitha Adams For Head Coaching Job?

While Keitha Adams continues to build the UTEP women’s basketball program into a mid-major power, she continues to attract interest from other larger college programs. The latest school could be Texas Tech, who suddenly needs a new head coach to lead their women’s program. In a somewhat surprising move, Kristy Curry left Tech last week to take the Alabama head coaching job. Although other prominent names like Louisville’s Jeff Walz and Texas A&M’s Gary Blair could be on Tech’s wish list, Women’s Basketball Hoop Scoop tweeted out Adams name last night.

Adams’ name has not surfaced yet in published media reports out of Lubbock. However, it would not be surprising if the Miners’ veteran leader gets a serious look at Texas Tech. The Lady Raiders have always had a successful women’s basketball program, and won the National Championship in 1993. In the last 30 seasons, they have made 20 trips to the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Nobody will ever duplicate the success of legendary Lady Raiders head coach Marsha Sharp, but Tech certainly wants either a top assistant coach or someone who has been able to win at a smaller program. Adams makes sense for that very reason, but El Paso hoops fans hope that the only Texas school she coaches remains UTEP.
