Trammell Goes Out On Top At OCU

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Latricia Trammell has resigned as Oklahoma City University women's basketball coach to pursue other coaching opportunities.

Trammell guided the Stars to an 85-10 record and two NAIA Division I championships in three seasons.

Oklahoma City took its second consecutive national title by defeating Campbellsville (Ky.) 80-63 on March 24 in Independence, Mo. The Stars overwhelmed Campbellsville with a 56-24 rebounding advantage. OCU has won national championships in 1988, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2012, 2014 and 2015.

“We are grateful to Coach Trammell for the hard work that she has put in leading our team for the past three years,” OCU athletic director Jim Abbott said. “We wish her the best of luck in her endeavors. I know that there will be a lot of interest in this position and look forward to beginning a nationwide search to find our next coach.”

Trammell said, “I want to thank athletic director Jim Abbott and Oklahoma City University for this incredible opportunity. I have been very blessed to coach a wonderful group of young ladies the past three seasons. I will be taking with me incredible memories and lifetime friendships. I wish OCU the very best.”

Yvonte Neal became national-tournament most valuable player to power the Stars' push to their third national crown in four years. Rateska Brown and Ouleymatou Coulibaly snared first-team all-American honors. OCU went 30-2 and swept the Sooner Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament titles.

Trammell directed the Stars to three SAC regular-season titles and the 2015 conference tournament championship. She led OCU to a 51-3 SAC record, winning the first 22 league games in her head-coaching tenure with the Stars. Trammell spurred the Stars to a 16-0 SAC record in 2012-13, becoming the 10th team in SAC history to go unbeaten through the conference.

OCU had nine all-Americans, 23 all-conference performers, three SAC player of the year recipients and three SAC newcomer of the year award winners under Trammell. Trammell won two Phyllis Holmes NAIA coach of the year honors and two SAC coach of the year awards.

Trammell has a 150-86 college head-coaching record in eight years. Trammell landed her first college head-coaching job with Western State (Colo.) and spent five seasons in Gunnison, Colo. Prior to that, Trammell had been OCU assistant coach from 2005-07.

Other stops in her coaching career have been stints as an assistant at North Texas and Texas Woman's as well as high-school head-coaching jobs at Denton Billy Ryan (Texas) and Midwest City, Okla.
