Meet The Author

Ann Parr has seen the Triangle Offense up close and personal. Her husband, Jack, played bas­ketball at Kansas State University, where legendary coach Tex Winter had his soon-to-be famous triple-post offense on full display. Jack provided Ann with many details of the intricacies of Tex’s coaching while she observed Winter’s personality and style beyond the game. It is this engaging aspect of his coaching genius that she shares with readers in Coach Tex Winter: Triangle Basketball.

Upon graduation from college, Ann taught elementary music, married Jack, and joined him in their training and development company, Jack Parr Associates, Inc., for 30 years. Along the way, her fascination with writing flourished, resulting in the writing, compiling or editing of 13 books. She continues to contribute to local newspapers and has several book manuscripts ready for their next steps.

Ann makes her home in Lindsborg, Kansas. Read more about Ann at
