TYLER, Texas (KTRE) - After four years at SFA as an assistant head coach, Rebecca Alvidrez is the new head coach for the women’s basketball team at UT Tyler.

Alvidrez was brought into SFA in 2017 where she helped the program grow and achieve a 49-6 record over the past two seasons including a berth in the NCAA National Tournament this year.

“I am thankful for Mark Kellogg,” Alvidrez said. “He set a vision I wanted to be a part of. I don’t think I would be here if I didn’t leave Colorado State to SFA. It was a blast.”

Alvidrez has over 20 years of coaching experience. She played college basketball at Montana State where she was a two-time All-Big Sky Selection and the league’s Newcomer of the Year in 2000-01. She was inducted into the Montana State University Hall of Fame in 2018.

She will take over a UT Tyler team that went 0-14 in a shortened Lone Star Conference 2021 season.
