THIS IS EPISODE 212 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Jacie Hoyt is in her second season as the head coach of the University of Missouri-Kansas City women’s basketball team. She is the youngest Division I coach in women’s basketball.
From 2014-2017, Hoyt was an assistant coach at Kansas State. And from 2011-2014, she was an assistant at the University of Nevada.
Her basketball career began in Kansas, playing for her mother, legendary high school coach Shelly Hoyt. Jacie scored 2,016 career points in just three seasons for Hoxie High School, and she was also a three-time all-state performer. Hoyt then earned a scholarship to Wichita State, where she was a team captain and point guard from 2006-2009.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Hoyt about her basketball journey, what she learned from the successes and failures, becoming the head coach at UMKC, the biggest differences in being a head coach and being an assistant, and how her faith in Christ has shaped it all.
This week’s personal focus:
