This season will mark a new beginning for Felix Oskam and the Texas Tech women's soccer program. Oskam, who served as an assistant for two years, took over the program this season.

Prior to coming to Tech in 1995, Oskam served for three years as an assistant coach for both the men's and women's programs at the University of Tulsa. During the 1993 season, the Tulsa women's program finished ranked 18th in the nation. In 1991, the Tulsa men's team achieved a national ranking of 17. Oskam is currently a staff coach and instructor for North Texas Soccer Association, a Region III Olympic Development Program (ODP) staff coach and the Director of Coaching for the girls competitive team, the Lubbock Elite Soccer Club. He has also worked as a staff coach for the ODP in Oklahoma and coached the Blackwatch '80 girls select team in Tulsa.

Oskam played 12 years of club soccer in the Netherlands before attending the University of North Texas. While at North Texas, he helped guide the Eagles to their first national ranking and was twice chosen as a Texas Collegiate Soccer League All-Star. Oskam holds a United States Soccer Federation National "A" license and is a member of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
