Christy Martin joins Titan Athletics as head coach of the Women’s Basketball team for the 2014-15 season.
Martin comes to TCC from Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, OR, where she spent six years turning a struggling program into the most successful women’s basketball program in BMCC history.
In the 2013-14 season, BMCC took 3rd in the NWAC tournament despite losing a top-scoring player to injury.
Originally from Spokane, Martin is familiar with Tacoma from high school State 4A Tournaments, in which she participated both as a player and as an assistant coach.
“Having the opportunity to work in a bigger pond with a larger array of local talent was a big draw to Tacoma,” said Martin. “TCC athletics are rich in tradition; I am excited and motivated to help bring Titan WBB back to prominence in the NWAC.”
Martin believes in developing strong student-athletes who hold themselves to high academic standards and give back to the community.
“My fundamental vision will always be excellence, both in the classroom, the community and during competition. Finding new and different mechanisms to achieving this is part of the challenge. The end goal is producing a program that our Titan community will be proud of.”
