Michelle Wyatt begins her seventh year as head coach of the Lady Texans. In her first six campaigns, Wyatt has led the Lady Texans to a record of 145 wins compared to only 38 losses (.792), including a 63-15 mark in Western Junior College Athletic Conference (WJCAC) games.
A victory over New Mexico Junior College on February 2, 2006 began a remarkable 44 game home winning streak that included three seasons in which the Lady Texans did not lose a game at home (2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09). The Lady Texans maintained that record through the first seven home games of the 2009-10 season before falling to Midland on February 8, 2010.
Wyatt's teams also excel in the classroom and were acknowledged for their
hard work after the 2008-09 season when they finished seventh in the Women's
Basketball Coaches Association Academic top 20 poll for community colleges,
posting a 3.26 team grade point average.
After serving as an assistant to SPC legend Lyndon Hardin for six years, Wyatt took over as head coach in 2005.
In her first year as head coach, Wyatt led the Lady Texans to a 25-6 record and a spot in the Region V tournament championship game. In her second season, the Lady Texans went 31-2 and won a WJCAC Co-Championship and were ranked No. 1 in the nation for much of the year. In 2007-08, SPC finished with a record of 26-4. The Lady Texans again won the WJCAC Championship and advanced to the Region V Championship game.
Wyatt is a graduate of Spur High School and played college basketball for two years at Abilene Christian University before transferring to Wayland Baptist for her last two years of eligibility.
During her senior year, the Flying Queens finished 30-5 and were 1992 NAIA national runners-up.
Wyatt started her coaching career as a graduate assistant at Texas Christian University from 1993-95. She left TCU to become an assistant at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas. She then became an assistant at Wayland Baptist for three years. She joined the SPC staff as an assistant in 1999.
Wyatt has worked camps at Wayland Baptist University, Texas Christian University, Texas Tech University and South Plains College. She was Co-Director of the annual Wyatt-White Basketball Camp in Spur, Texas in 1995-96, a camp she conducted with her cousin Lance White, an assistant coach at Florida State University. She oversaw a varsity camp, a day camp and a mini-camp designed especially for kindergarten through third graders.
In her spare time, Wyatt enjoys running and participated in the Boston Marathon in 1999. She also enjoys playing golf.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education and a minor in Biology. She earned her Master's degree in Sport Pedagogy from Texas Christian University.
