Northern Colorado athletics has announced the hiring of Kristen Mattio as the next
head Women's Basketball coach.
Mattio, a native of Nashville, Tennessee, has spent the last six seasons as the head coach at West Texas A&M. At the helm of the Lady Buffs program, Mattio compiled a record of 154-35. She is the fastest coach in program history to reach 150 wins by doing so in just 180 games. Mattio secured four Lone Star Conference Titles (2016, 2018, 2019, 2020), took home two LSC Tournament Titles (2018, 2019) and won the South Central Regional Championship in 2017.
"We are excited to welcome Kristen to the Northern Colorado family. We set out to find a leader who would build champions on and off the court and there is no doubt we hit that mark," said Director of Athletics Darren Dunn. "Coach Mattio is a respected recruiter and developer of talent who has achieved immense success on a national level. Most importantly, she is a tremendous person who cares for her student-athletes. Her familiarity with Colorado and the Big Sky Conference made her the perfect choice as our new head coach of the University of Northern Colorado women's basketball program."
