Carla D. Morrow recently wrapped up her seventh season as an assistant women's basketball coach at Xavier University and her first under head coach Brian Neal.

In Morrow's seven seasons at XU, the Musketeers have put together a 137-82 overall record and a 67-35 mark in conference action. She has helped Xavier capture six A-10 Championships and advance to four NCAA Tournaments highlighted by an Elite Eight appearance in 2010.

The 2010-11 campaign was one for the record books as the Musketeers posted their second consecutive undefeated A-10 season with a 14-0 mark, becoming the first team to accomplish the feat in conference history. Morrow worked closely with the post players, including 2011 WNBA draftees Amber Harris and Ta'Shia Phillips, who were chosen fourth and eighth, respectively.

Morrow came to Xavier after spending two years at Colorado as the director of basketball operations. While at Colorado, Morrow was responsible for organizing the team travel and film exchange, coordinating summer camps and publicity events while also serving as the team's academic, equipment and compliance liaison.

Prior to her time at Colorado, Morrow served as the director of basketball operations at Missouri State. With the Bears, Morrow's duties included film exchange and handling day-to-day operations within the program. The Bears won the 2005 WNIT and made an appearance in the 2004 NCAA Tournament.

As a player, Morrow was a four-year standout guard at Tulsa from 1998-2002. Morrow was the first player in Tulsa history with 1,000 points and 600 rebounds in a career. She finished her career ranking second in 3-point field goals (122), total field goals (427), rebounds (642), steals (201) and games played on the Golden Hurricane career charts and was third in scoring with 1,115 points.

Morrow was named to the All-Western Athletic Conference Second Team as a senior in 2002, averaging 12.2 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. She signed a free agent contract with the WNBA's Seattle Storm in 2002 to become the first Golden Hurricane to sign a professional contract.

Morrow graduated from Tulsa in 2002 with a bachelor's degree in sport management. She spent the 2002-03 season as the freshman and varsity basketball coach at Tulsa Central High School. Morrow earned her master's degree in physical education from Missouri State in 2004.

A native of Houston, Texas, Morrow graduated from Elkins High School in Missouri City, Texas, in 1998 where she lettered in basketball, volleyball and soccer.

Morrow's parents, Carl and Dora and brother Chadrick, reside in Missouri City, Texas.
