Position: Head Coach
Years Coached: 4th Season

Christopher Minner enters his fourth year with Our Lady of the Lake University and his first as head coach.  In 2009 he became assistant coach of the inaugural women's basketball team at OLLU. The Lady Saints ended their inaugural season with a 17-15 record after reaching the Red River Athletic Conference tournament semifinal round. He returned in 2010 to help the Lady Saints improve their season record to 20-9 and reach the quarterfinal stage of the RRAC tournament. Last season, the team won the conference tournament and earned a berth to the NAIA Division I Women's Basketball National Championship. They lost to Oklahoma City University in the first round by a score of 73-91. The Saints ended their season with a 26-8 overall record and 18-6 in the conference.

Minner came to OLLU from Texas A&M International University (TAMIU), an NCAA Division II school. There he served for one year as women's assistant basketball coach. 

Minner primarily managed TAMIU's defense and worked with the team on shooting and scoring. His work helped the team with a six-game improvement in the league and a five-game improvement in total wins for the season. TAMIU was ranked No. 4 in the nation in steals and No. 11 in turnover to assist ratio. It placed No. 1 in scoring offense, steals, forced turnovers and blocks in the conference. Minner was also the men's head golf coach at TAMIU.

While at TAMIU, the team made the Heartland Conference semifinals and it had its first-ever conference playoff berth.

Prior to TAMIU, Minner was the boys' varsity head basketball coach at Vacaville Christian High School in California. He directed the Falcons to a 62-24 overall record, winning one Sacramento Valley Christian League (SVCL) title and one Central Valley Christian League title. In addition, he was named SVCL Coach of the Year in 2006, his team GPA was 3.42 and he had the most playoff wins for a boys' head varsity coach.

From 2002-2005, Minner was the women's head basketball coach for Napa Valley Community College. He was the all-time winningest coach in percentage and number of wins. Napa Valley showed steady improvement throughout Minner's tenure, improving from a 10-20 record in 2002 to a 16-10 mark in 2004. He guided the team to its first state playoff berth in 2003 and its highest ranking on record in that position.  


Throughout his career, Minner has also coached golf, baseball and cross-country. 

Minner received a Bachelor of Arts in English from Sonoma State University and a master's degree in health, physical education and recreation from St. Mary's College of California.
