Tech mourns loss of former coaches
Louisiana Tech University and the Lady Techster basketball program were shocked Friday morning by the news that former head coach Kurt Budke and former assistant coach Miranda Serna were tragically killed in a single-engine plane crash late Thursday night in Perry County, Arkansas while on a recruiting trip.
“I was deeply saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Kurt Budke and Miranda Serna last night,” said Tech President Dan Reneau. “This is a great tragedy and, on behalf of Louisiana Tech, I offer my sympathy and condolences to their families. They both will be missed.”
