TULSA, Oklahoma -

Angie Nelp will be returning to her home state as the University of Tulsa’s new women’s basketball head coach, the university announced Monday.

Nelp will be introduced Tuesday as the 11th head coach in Tulsa women’s basketball history. She comes to TU after four seasons coaching Arizona State, most recently as the associate head coach.

"I am extremely humbled and excited to be the next head coach of the women's basketball team at The University of Tulsa," said Nelp. "Our team will represent the values of this great university and its commitment to excellence. We will be a team that plays for each other, gives our best effort in all we do, and competes for championships. My family and I are looking forward to being part of the TU family."

"I'm thrilled to welcome Angie, Jake and family to The University of Tulsa. It's an exciting day for our university, athletics department and women's basketball program," said TU Director of Athletics Rick Dickson. "Angie brings the enthusiasm and tenacity that we were looking for in our new coach. She has a passion to see that her student-athletes succeed not only on the court but in all phases of life.”
