Eddie Kite came to Connors State College from the University of Houston with the challenge of returning the Cowgirl program back to its lofty status as a NJCAA national power. Since arriving in 2003, he has consistently fielded competitive teams.
In 10 seasons at Connors State Kite has posted a 191-114 record for a winning percentage of .626. The Cowgirls under Kite’s guidance won the Bi-State Conference and Region II Championship to advance to the NJCAA National Tournament in the 2008-09 season, while being ranked in the NJCAA Top 10. He was named the Bi-State Conference and Region II Coach of the Year.
Kite’s 2010-11 squad won the Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Conference title with a 27-5 record where he was named the OCAC Coach of the Year.
Kite is currently the Region II Division I Director and is serving on the softball committee.
He served as the Region II women's basketball committee chairman from 2007 to 2011.
Kite arrived at the University of Houston after a two-year stint as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Mobile. Kite helped turn around a program that was 13-19 the year before his arrival to 30-6 during the 2001-02 season. That season saw the Lady Ram program win the GCAC regular season and conference tournament championships, make its first NAIA National Tournament appearance in eight years, and its first ever "Sweet 16" appearance. The Lady Rams set new team records for team wins, winning percentage, and overall team defense. The University of Mobile also provided the WNBA with its only non-Division I draftee, 6-6 Edmarie Lumbsley.
Kite began his coaching career as an assistant at Central Florida Community College in 1991. He helped lead the Lady Pats to their first-ever NJCAA National Tournament, finishing second in the national tournament with a 34-3 record. During his stint at CFCC, the program produced two NJCAA All-Americans and the 1993 NJCAA Champion Player of the Year (Connie Thornton, Texas Tech University). Kite moved to East Texas Baptist University in 1993 to help the Tigers to their first-ever NAIA National Tournament appearance in 1994, finishing the season with a 25-8 mark. Kite then took an assistant’s position at Oral Roberts University before arriving at the University of Montevallo (Al.) in 1996. While Kite was at Montevallo, the Lady Falcons played for the 1997 NAIA Regional Championship and appeared in their first-ever Gulf South Conference Tournament in 1999.
Kite received a Bachelor's of Art degree from East Texas Baptist University in 1995 and is currently working on a Master's Degree from East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma. He is a member of the Oklahoma Girls’ Basketball Coaches Association.
A native of Murchison, Texas, Kite and his wife of twenty years, Sarah, have three children; Aimee, Clinton, and Shelby . The Kite family resides in Warner, Oklahoma.
