Gary Blair

Head Coach

A two-time Naismith Coach of the Year Finalist and Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame member, Gary Blair’s place in history is set. Since taking the helm at Texas A&M in 2003, Blair has taken the Aggie women’s basketball program to new heights. After claiming his first conference championship in 2007, Blair led the Aggies to two more Big 12 tournament championships in 2008 and 2010. That success culminated in 2011 when the Aggies made their first trip to the Final Four and eventually won the program’s first NCAA Championship. The team ended the year ranked No. 1 in the coaches’ poll, another first in the program’s history. Along the way, Blair became the winningest coach in Aggie women’s basketball history, reaching the milestone in 2010. He also won the SEC Tournament in 2013. Blair was previously the head coach at both Stephen F. Austin and Arkansas. He is one of only three coaches in Division I history to lead two different teams to the Final Four.
