Texas Tech formally announced the new women's head basketball coach Wednesday.
Officials named former Lady Raider Candace Whitaker the 6th head coach in the university's history at a news conference. She says a majority of her family lives in West Texas so it couldn't be a more perfect fit.
Whitaker played for Tech from 2000-2002. She spent her last basketball season as the Associate Head Coach at Oklahoma State.
