Oklahoma City University made history with the hiring of its new coach.

Brett Tahah will take over as women’s basketball coach, becoming the first OCU alumna to lead the program, OCU announced Wednesday morning.

Tahah spent the past two seasons as girls basketball coach and athletic director for Frontier High School. She led Frontier to the state semifinals, an undefeated record in the 89er Athletic Conference and a 27-2 record in the 2018-19 season.

Tahah is 117-50 overall as a head coach with two state tournament semifinal appearances and an academic state championship at Frontier, Elgin, Hobart and Lookeba-Sickles. 

As a player for OCU during 2008-10, Tahah contributed to two NAIA Fab Four appearances and won the team’s NAIA champion of character award. The Stars recorded a 63-10 record, won two Sooner Athletic Conference Tournament titles and an SAC regular-season championship during that time.
