Texas Tech’s Adrian Gregory Steps Down


Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt announced in a press release Tuesday that Adrian Gregory has stepped down as head softball coach, effective immediately.

Gregory just completed her sixth season at Texas Tech, amassing a 157-147 record, and leading the Red Raiders to a 42-win campaign in her final full season in 2019. That season culminated with an NCAA tournament appearance.

USA TODAY Sports first reported the firing of the Texas Tech’s women’s basketball coach six weeks ago on allegations of player abuse. According to USA TODAY, similar allegations against the softball coach prompted an internal review.

“At this time, I have found it best to part ways with Texas Tech University and its softball program,” Gregory said. “I have truly loved Lubbock and the relationships I have built here. I wish the current players and staff all the best as they move forward with future seasons.”
“I would like to thank Coach Gregory for her contributions to Texas Tech,” Hocutt said. “I wish her the best in the future.”
