Meet Coach Katie Bryan
Katie Bryan, assistant women’s basketball coach, has been named head coach of the Welch College Lady Flames basketball team. Miss Bryan graduated from Welch in 2012 with an associate’s degree in Biology, then transitioned into the nursing program Welch has with Belmont University.
Katie graduated in 2014 as a registered nurse with a B.S.N. degree from Belmont. She was inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. She is currently employed in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit at Centennial Medical Center in Nashville.
Coach Bryan said, “My love of basketball came at an early age from playing in middle school, high school, and as a freshman at King University in Bristol, Tennessee.” After playing at Welch, she shared coaching duties with her father, Larry Bryan, before being named head coach for the 2016-2017 season.
“I am excited to further the disciplines of the Lady Flames as basketball players, but also in their daily walk with Jesus Christ. I want to continue building a program that will represent the college and our Lord in a positive way and to attract other students to Welch,” exclaimed Bryan.
