"Having interviewed an intensive number of highly qualified and impressive coaching candidates throughout the state of Texas there was one who continued to impress me in every area I was looking for. Amazingly and thankfully this person was already here. It is a credit to the previous staff and Baylor University for attracting yet another incredible individual. Most importantly, she is an incredible leader because of her humble willingness to serve those around her. There is something uniquely special about Sam and I am confident that she will grow to become one of the country's top head coaches some day."
