Kevin Baker's second full staff for the women's basketball program features a wide range of experience in assistant coaches, including one who went 16-0 in Conference USA and an assistant of former UTEP coach Sandra Rushing.

Todd Buchanan, who led Houston to the second undefeated C-USA season in 2010-11 (UTEP previously did it in 2007-08) and was coach of the year, is coming from Allen Community College, where he was head coach.

Heather Karner comes from Central Arkansas, where she was an assistant for Rushing, who recommended her to Baker for the UTEP opening.
