Midwestern State women’s basketball coach Christopher Reay has resigned as women's head basketball coach for the Mustangs. Reay finishes his tenure with a 35-48 overall record.

Reay was named interim head coach for the final 10 games of the 2019-2020 season for Noel Johnson due to Johnson’s leave of absence to fight against ovarian cancer. MSU finished that season 4-6, and Reay was promptly named head coach.

The Mustangs went 11-7 overall and finished with its best record in the LSC since 2014-2015 (11-5) during the CoVID-19 pandemic. MSU has another winning record in 2021-2022 (14-13 overall) and earned a spot in the LSC tournament. 

Last year was a struggle for a Mustangs squad with a mix of veterans and young players. MSU finished 6-22 overall with a 4-18 record in the LSC. However, the team continued to play hard for Reay throughout the season, highlighted by a 69-65 win at home over rival Cameron to close the 2022-2023 season.

An MSU alum, Reay spent 10 seasons as an assistant coach for Johnson following his playing career, which included three years playing professionally for the New Zealand National Basketball League after helping lead MSU to the LSC title in 2006-2007.
