ARLINGTON, Texas - It's no secret that UTA women's basketball coach Krista Gerlich is competitive, from the sidelines, to her playing time on the court, she is out there to win. The apple didn't fall far from the tree with her daughter, Bryn.
This week CBS11 met with coach Gerlich and Bryn, who has committed to play at Oklahoma State about their dynamic of what it means to be a parent in coaching.
"With Colleyville Heritage cruising into the girls' state basketball playoffs, Bryn Gerlich is poised to finish her high school career in style.
She has already signed to play college ball next season at Oklahoma State.
When she looks in the stands, she instantly realizes where her inspiration comes from. Bryn's mother, Krista Gerlich, was a star player on the women's basketball team that won the national title in 1993 at Texas Tech."I couldn't do any of this without my mom," said Bryn. "Her love of the game is why I love the game." Krista says she's happy to see her daughter following her own path. That path includes heading to Stilwater, Oklahoma, instead of Lubbock, Texas, like her mother and her father Brian, who was a linebacker for the Red Raiders."
