Former head coach of the Texas Tech Lady Raiders Marsha Sharp will soon help the university with fundraising and community interaction efforts. Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt announced Sharp would be joining the athletics department’s efforts to engage the community.

“Marsha Sharp has made unprecedented contributions to Texas Tech University,” says Hocutt.  “For years, her leadership enhanced the student-athlete experience on our campus and we take tremendous pride in the accomplishments of coach Sharp and her teams.  I am pleased that she has agreed to take on this new role, and I look forward to working with her as our department moves forward.”

Sharp, who led the Lady Raiders to the 1993 NCAA Championship, will sere as an associate athletics director, as well as provide professional development for those involved in the athletics program. She’ll also benefit donor-department relationships.

“Kirby Hocutt has been wonderful to help me find a role that would be beneficial to Texas Tech Athletics and to me personally,” remarked Sharp.  “I am really thankful for what he has done to help me get back in the fold. There are so many great things about Texas Tech University and this athletics program and we just want to make sure that we are supporting each other and moving in the right direction.  I am excited about the opportunity to get to work with coaches, staff and student-athletes and to be involved in the community.”

To take on this position, Sharp has resigned as Executive Director of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, which has raised over $4 million for cancer research. She has been Executive Director since 2007.
