Cam Bryant, after an illustrious competitive career that saw her become a four-time national champion with the Baylor Bears, has accepted the Acrobatics & Tumbling head coaching position at Texas Lutheran University, athletic director Bill Miller announced Monday.

"We are extremely excited that Cam Bryant has accepted our head Acrobatics and Tumbling Coaching position. She has the background and personality to get the TLU Acrobatics and Tumbling program off to a strong start. Having been a member of multiple National Championship Teams at Baylor, she understands what it takes to build a championship program and compete at a championship level. She also has strong connections in the Acrobatics and Tumbling community which will serve her well as she builds the TLU Acrobatics and Tumbling program from the ground up. She knows that she has a chance to make history and to build something that will make TLU distinctive among many other NCAA DIII institutions moving forward. We are excited for her and excited that she wanted to be part of the TLU family," said Miller.

Baylor Bears Head Coach Felecia Mulkey stated, "During her time with the Baylor program, Cam served as the team's battery. She is a talented athlete, but Cam's energy, passion and ability to lift everyone around her made her an integral part of our success. I have no doubt that she will take these skills into her coaching career where she will teach, mentor and compete at the highest level. I am excited for Cam but I am absolutely thrilled for Texas Lutheran, the Seguin community and all of the student-athletes who are going to benefit from Cam's impact."

Bryant, a native of Suwanee, Georgia, will be the first to hold the position in school history.

"First and foremost I'd like to thank God for blessing me with this opportunity to become a head coach. Thank you to all of my amazing coaches, teammates, and family who have been there for me throughout my athletic career and who will continue supporting me through this next chapter of my life," said Bryant. "I am excited to get to Seguin and share with the community the sport of Acrobatics and Tumbling. I want to build on the Championship Culture that is already in place at Texas Lutheran by recruiting student-athletes that are academically and athletically motivated to be successful. This is such an amazing opportunity for women coming from a variety of athletic backgrounds such as gymnastics, cheer and many others, giving them a chance to compete at the collegiate level. I am thrilled to be able to grow this sport at TLU and continue making history."

President Debbie Cottrell added, "The launching of an Acrobatics & Tumbling program at Texas Lutheran is a very exciting step for us. I'm thrilled to have someone with the skill and passion of Cam Bryant lead this program and serve as our inaugural head coach. I know she'll help ensure a successful and thriving program for us."

Bryant graduated from Baylor with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Health Kinesiology and Leisure Studies and will graduate with her Master's in Sports Pedagogy in May. Bryant helped the Bears compile a record of 43-2 and four NCATA national championships over her five years as a student-athlete.
