Texas Tech women’s coach, Cari Groce, has either been dismissed or resigned within the last 48 hours, depending on what sources you hear it from.
You wouldn’t know it from the Tech website, so it seems that they are attempting to sweep something under the rug. Todd Petty is listed as interim coach on the school’s official website.
One version of the story claims Groce was looking for some ‘personal time’ after going through some personal issues. Another was that there was some inappropriate activities going on during road trips, combined with the lack of success of the team. This combined with the fact that it has been known that she had ruffled some feathers on campus, including losing an assistant coach last fall.
Regardless, something is up. You don’t just get a new coach two weeks before school starts.
