Cal women hire Texas Tech's McGuire
California has hired Texas Tech women's coach Neil McGuire as its new women's coach, replacing Kevin Boyd, who resigned earlier this year and later took the women's job at Arizona State.
McGuire, a native of Scotland and former player at Division II Augusta State, coached Texas Tech the past two seasons and was the head coach at Mississippi coach for four years (2000-03). He spent the 2004 season as a women's assistant at Texas.
He was tabbed as the 2001 SEC Coach of the Year when he guided Mississippi State to the first-ever women's conference title in Bulldog athletics, leading his team to a share of the 2001 SEC Western Division championship.
In 2006, McGuire's second season at Texas Tech, the Red Raiders finished 7-11-2, recording their most wins in seven season.
McGuire inherits a Cal team that advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament and welcomes one of the top recruiting classes in the country.
