McNutt replaces Jenifer Wells. Mcnutt has thirteen years of division one head coaching experience. Her last seven years were at Southern Mississippi, where she won two Conference USA titles.
Mcnutt is an Alvin native, who also coached at Northwestern State for six seasons. She won three Southland Conference championships.
