Texas Tech tabs Bryce Te Kulve as softball pitching coach

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech softball and head coach Craig Snider announced the hiring of Bryce Te Kulve as the squad’s new pitching coach Wednesday.

Te Kulve has spent the last two years as a graduate assistant under one of the best pitching minds in the game, Lonni Alameda. This past season, the Seminoles finished as the 2023 National Runners-Up in the Women’s College World Series.

“Bryce brings all the qualities we have been searching for in a pitching coach,” Snider said. “He understands development, data, staff management, and above all fits our growing culture! Bryce’s background with USA softball and Florida State brings a wealth of knowledge to our pitching staff and ball club.”

In his time in Tallahassee, Te Kulve worked alongside three-time all-American Kathryn Sandercock. Sandercock finished the season with the seventh-best ERA in the nation (1.12), a 28-3 record and 11 shutouts, earning her second-team all-American honors, NFCA Southeast All-Region First Team honors and ACC Pitcher of the Year. She was also named the ACC Tournament MVP and an All-ACC First Team selection.

Te Kulve also brings in experience at the national level after being a member of the 2023 U23 Men’s National Team.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to join Coach Snider and his staff at Texas Tech,” Tekulve said. In their first year with the program, Coach Snider and his staff proved their ability to develop their athletes to not only compete at the highest level, but also help them grow as individuals. I’m excited to be a part of the program and continue to develop the culture of Texas Tech softball and work with an exceptional staff to capitalize on the talent that each athlete has within the program.”

The Luxemburg, Wisconsin native graduated with his bachelor’s degree in business administration from St. Norbert College in 2021, where he also played a season of collegiate baseball. He obtained his master’s degree in sports management from Florida State in 2023.
