Former players say they learned how to treat players, run program from Sharp
Krista Gerlich doesn’t get much lip from her players at West Texas A&M.
When she does, the head coach just has to utter a few words to get her players to listen.
“‘Raise your hand if you’ve won a national championship,’” Gerlich says, “and my hand is the only one that goes up. That kind of gets them to shut up and go, ‘OK, all right,’ and they get back on track.”
Gerlich, in her seventh season as head women’s basketball coach for the Lady Buffs, won an NCAA title with Texas Tech in 1993 when she was known as Krista Kirkland.
