WVU Tech Athletic Director Kenny Howell announced Monday that Summers County native Roger Hodge will take the reins of the WVU Tech women’s basketball program.
“We are beyond excited to formally announce the appointment of Roger Hodge as our new women’s basketball coach,” Howell said. “The opportunity to get someone with Coach Hodge’s experience and quality track record, doesn’t come around often. While previous success and quality programs are a given when you look at Roger’s history, the fact WVU Tech gets to bring him back home to southern West Virginia, makes this even sweeter. We are confident in Coach Hodge’s ability to build on our successes over the last decade, and compete for RSC and National Championship opportunities each season. It’s obvious our student-athletes are in good hands.”
Hodge replaces Anna Kowalska, who left for Life University in June.
Hodge, who served as an assistant to former Summers County coach Wayne Ryan, was most recently the head coach at Coastal Georgia where he holds the record for most wins in program history.
