Chadwick Accepts Head Job At Texas A&M CC

Marshall women’s basketball coach Royce Chadwick has decided to return to his home state of Texas, accepting the head coach position at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. 
Chadwick, a Floydada, Texas native just completed his 11th season with the Thundering Herd, posting a 16-14 record and finishing 7th in the C-USA standings. Chadwick inherited a program in 1997 that had fallen on hard times. The Herd had gone just 30-81 in the four years following its lone NCAA berth. From 1997 to 2001, Chadwick went 58-58.
The Thundering Herd posted its first winning season in seven years in 2003-04 and hosted a postseason MAC game at the Cam Henderson Center, a first for the program. Marshall advanced to Gund Arena in Cleveland, and pulled off the upset of the tournament by knocking off third seeded Kent State before eventually losing to the tournament champion Eastern Michigan. 
Before arriving in Huntington in 1997, Chadwick led Stephen F. Austin to the NCAA Sweet 16 in 1996. He also led the Ladyjacks to seven Southland Conference Tournament titles and had a .901 winning percentage in the league. Chadwick also had stints as the head coach at Panhandle State in Oklahoma and Sam Houston State.
In 28 years, Chadwick has compiled 561 wins as a head coach.
