Coach Wright will be entering his second season as head coach this fall. After the
record-breaking success of his first team, he and his players will be challenged to
equal or surpass that success in year #2. Wright was named the new head coach for
the Schreiner Women's Basketball program last summer and all that first team did was
break the NCAA record for wins in a season by six games, set the record for conference
wins in a season by three games (needing 10 less games to do so) earning the program's
first postseason bid in the NCAA and winning their first round game in the tournament.
For the three years prior to taking over, he served as SU's assistant coach.
During those three years, Wright has helped build a strong foundation for the Schreiner program. The Mountaineers have improved each year and have a solid core of returners coming back for this year. In each of his years in the program, SU has had one of the top defenses in the league.
Prior to coming to Kerrville, Wright was the assistant men's basketball coach for his alma mater, the University of Texas at Dallas. During his last season with the Comets, the team registered an overall record of 24-6 (.800). Prior to beginning his coachinig career at UTD, he was a two-year starter at point guard (2007-09) for the Comets and led the team to the 2009 NCAA "Elite Eight" in the NCAA Division III National Championship Tournament. During his playing career at UTD, Wright was a part of one of the most successful collegiate programs in Texas. During his junior season, Wright ranked sixth on the team in scoring (7.4 ppg) while leading UT-Dallas to a 17-9 record and the ASC Quarterfinals. In his senior year, Wright became the leading scorer (12.1 ppg) and second leading rebounder (5.3 rpg) while leading the team to a school record 26 wins overall and his play earned the MVP award for the 2009 American Southwest Conference Tournament while leading the team to the championship. He graduated in 2009 with a degree in History. He earned his Masters in Education from Schreiner in 2012. Prior to UTD, Wright starred at Clarendon College in Clarendon, TX for two years under head coach Tony Starnes.
During his coaching and playing career, Wright has learned from three coaches who
are highly respected coaches and teachers of the game (UTD head coach Terry Butterfield.
Starnes, Wallis). He brings that knowledge to his new job and combines those skills
with a tremendous work ethic, strong commitment to building positive relationships
with his players and a commitment to their success both on the court and in the classroom.
His calm demeanor and friendly personality also help to create a very family-oriented
atmosphere within the program.
