Damitria Buchanan enters her second season as an assistant coach at Texas Tech in 2013.
Main responsibilities will include recruiting, post play, academic liaison and scouting.
Played an integral part in helping Tech land one of its most promising recruiting classes in 2014 after just one year on the South Plains.
Comes to Tech after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, Texas.
Helped guide the Ladyjacks to the Southland Conference Tournament Championship and a 23-win season in 2011-12. The increase in 11 wins from the 2010-11 season (12) to 2011-12 (23) was tied for the sixth-biggest turnaround in the nation.
As a player, she helped guide Texas A&M to three Big 12 titles and four Top 25 finishes -- three top-10 finishes in each of her final three seasons.
Named team captain during her senior season in 2009-10, and was a two-time Academic All-Big 12 First Team selection.
Received her bachelor's degree from Texas A&M in 2010 and remained in the College Station area to pursue a master's degree while serving as a teacher and coach at A&M Consolidated Middle School.
"She is an outstanding young coach and recruiter with great ties to both the Houston and Dallas regions. I look forward to working with her as we continue the great tradition of the Lady Raider program."
