Girls Athletic Coordinator
Head Girls Basketball Coach
Head Track & Field Coach
Coach Tiffany Maher joins Manor New Tech High School as the Girls’ Athletic Coordinator for our mighty Lady Titan Athletic program. It is her mission to mold this program into one that will support Manor New Tech’s overall vision for our scholars. She strives to build a program in which our scholar-athletes are challenged in ways that push them to become strong, confident, persistent, and successful young women. Our program will work to build these young ladies into the greatest possible version of themselves!
Coach Maher has long been an avid believer in the power of sports in the lives of our youth. To some, it is simply a hobby to keep them focused. To others, it may be the difference between graduation from high school and post-secondary success or life-long poverty. Sports has the power to force someone to pull themselves out of situations that they may not have the strength to face otherwise. As a former athlete, she can personally attest to the power of sports in her own life, and promises, that understanding does not ever leave her as she works to mold these young ladies.
Coach Maher comes from Miles, a small west Texas town. She is a single mom to 3 beautiful children, Allieanna 12, Colten 10, and Bransen, 5. They all attend school within the New Tech fam, and are loving Austin, even though it has taken some getting used to, for sure. She has played and coached almost every sport, but basketball is what gets her excited to come to work every day. Coach Maher is in her 8th year of coaching and teaching, and is amazed at how every single day manages to bring new surprises. She is extremely grateful to have the honor of leading the Lady Titans through our inaugural year and hopes for many more to come!
Head Volleyball Coach
Head Girls Soccer
Coach Jeffrey Coward's two favorite sports are soccer and volleyball and now at Manor New Tech he will get to lead starter programs in both!
Coach Coward is proud of his non-profit KnockOut Volleyball which spends all its energy and resources on bringing volleyball to kids that don’t have access to the game. Volleyball is the greatest team sport in the world and offers life lessons that anyone at this level will keep with them for the rest of their lives. He takes great pride in seeing what his players have gone on to achieve in their adult lives, and take special notice of how many of them have gone on to coach volleyball.
Club volleyball has become so expensive that many kids are left out of the equation and he wants KnockOut Volleyball to be the organization that changes how the system works allowing everyone access to the game. Coach Coward is starting his 28th year as a coach, and his 18th as a Head Volleyball Coach. He ended the '17 campaign with a 392-283 career record as a varsity coach. His top team was the ’04 Dripping Springs squad that spent most of that season ranked number one in the state and lost in Regional Finals to Boerne in game five. Coach says, “That team in Drip was tough. Seven of their 32 wins came in situations where they had lost the first two games and had to win three in a row. They never quit." As great as that team was he still looks back at that first team of his with the most fondness. There wasn’t a single player in the program at Hudson Catholic (in ’94) that had ever seen let alone played in a volleyball match when they started the program. Three years later those same kids were in the playoffs it was an amazing feeling.
Now his next challenge is creating a great soccer program. Coach Coward loves soccer and has assisted it for much of his career. He is thrilled to have the first opportunity to create a championship program from the ground up!
