Son of hoops legend lands head coaching job Published: April 2, 2014

Chrisstasia Walker, a 5-foot-8 junior guard on Louisiana Tech's women's basketball game, was born Oct. 9, 1991.

Her new head coach is less than 13 months older than her, according to Yahoo Sports.

Louisiana Tech announced Tuesday it has hired 23-year-old Tyler Summitt to revitalize a once-dominant women's basketball program that went to 13 Final Fours prior to 1999 but endured its first-ever losing seasons the past two years. Summitt, the son of legendary former Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt, graduated from college in 2012 and has spent the past two seasons as an assistant coach at Marquette.
