Friday morning it was business as usual for TCU Women’s Basketball head coach Raegan Pebley. She sat with her staff in the war room as she calls it breaking down film on their upcoming opponent, Kansas, as they prepared to take on the Jayhawks in the regular season finale.

After the meeting with her staff Pebley went into her office to sit down for lunch, joking “It feels like I’m dying with everyone eulogizing me the last week, I’m not dying, I just won’t be the coach at TCU anymore.”

For Pebley, it’s another chapter in her life that is coming to a close. Earlier in the week she announced that she would be stepping down as head coach after the season concluded.

Pebley has spent the last nine seasons at TCU, leading several teams to the Women’s NIT. The program was second in the Big 12 and tournament bound in 2020 before the postseason was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I’m able to walk away from TCU with relationships intact, my integrity intact, and my love for Fort Worth and TCU intact”, Pebley said. “That doesn’t happen a lot in this industry. My identity is so much bigger than the label “coach”. My purpose is to create and serve teams and serve the individuals within teams”.
