FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State Athletics confirmed Tuesday the resignation of head women's basketball coach Raegan Pebley, who has been named the head coach at Texas Christian University.
"We are grateful to Raegan for her strong guidance, exceptional collegiality and significant contributions to the continuing development of Fresno State Women's Basketball," Fresno State director of athletics Thomas Boeh said. "Although it is difficult to see her leave the San Joaquin Valley, we understand the personal considerations with her family in Texas and the unique opportunity that was presented to her at TCU. Our program and student-athletes have benefited greatly from her leadership and we wish her the best."
"My family feels so blessed to have been apart of Fresno State, Bulldog Women's Basketball and the community," Pebley said. "We always tried to represent you with honor and pride. We genuinely need to thank Thomas Boeh and his staff for their support and expertise in continuing to provide amazing opportunities for student-athletes. I am confident your next coach will be welcomed by some of the best fans in the country along with our loyal Hoop Clubbers. There is no doubt your new coach will also be welcomed by a team full of women who are champions on the court and in life."
Pebley was 46-20 (.697) overall in her two seasons at Fresno State and went 26-8 in Mountain West play. Her Bulldog squads finished second both years in the MW regular season standings, but won the conference tournament both seasons to secure the league's automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.
A national search for Pebley's successor will begin immediately. Fresno State will have no further comment on the search for the next women's basketball head coach until a hire has been made.
