Nooner named Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach at Wichita State

Wichita State head women’s basketball coach Terry Nooner announced the addition of Patrick Harrison to the coaching staff Monday morning.
“Wichita native Patrick Harrison is coming back home, and we couldn’t be more excited!” Nooner said. “He brings an impressive record in recruiting and player development. We’re confident his expertise and leadership will be a huge boost to our team’s success. We are thrilled to welcome Patrick and his wife Tiffany to the Shocker family!”
Harrison joins the Shockers after spending last year as the associate head coach at Stephen F. Austin, where he helped lead the Lumberjacks on a run to the Western Athletic Conference championships game.
Prior to SFA, he was an assistant coach for New Mexico State, where the Aggies earned a spot in the Women’s College Basketball Invitational and made a run to the championship game. Harrison spent four years (2018-22) on the coaching staff at Kansas City, coaching alongside former Wichita State player, Jacie Hoyt. The Roos had a pair of 20-plus win seasons in 2019-20 and 2021-22 with a WNIT appearance in 2021-22 and a WAC Regular Season Championship in 2019-20.
Overall, Harrison has been a college basketball coach for 13 years with stops at Iowa Western (2017-18), Johnson County CC (2016-17), North Dakota State (2014-16), Hastings College (2013-14), with his first stop being at Wichita State, where he was a graduate assistant while earning his master’s degree in Sport Management from 2011-13. The Shockers won their first of three-straight Missouri Valley Conference Championships in 2013.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to join Wichita State women’s basketball, Harrison said. “My passion for this city and this university runs deep, and I can’t thank Coach Nooner and his staff enough for this opportunity. I’ve had some incredible championship memories as a Shocker, and I can’t wait to create more on and off the floor with this team!”
