Former associate head coach Carlos Quintero was affiliated with Rice women's basketball for 15 seasons, the last being the 2009-10 campaign. He spent his last eight years as an assistant coach both under Cristy McKinney and Greg Williams.
During Quintero's time with the program, Rice made postseason trips eight times, including the 2000 and 2005 NCAA Tournaments. The Owls upset regional host and No. 9 ranked UC Santa Barbara, 67-64 in 2000. Under Williams, Rice strung together back-to-back WNIT appearances in 2006 and 2007.
On the court, Quintero worked primarily with the post players. Additionally, he was responsible for game scheduling, equipment procurement, scheduling of Rice facilities, the scout team and coordinating official visits to Rice.
Quintero also shared opponent scouting duties with the coaching staff and served as the summer camp director. Besides his work at Rice, he has scouted for the New York Liberty, Charlotte Sting, Washington Mystics and Atlanta Dream of the WNBA.
Quintero graduated from Rice in the spring of 1998 with a bachelor's degree in sociology and Spanish as a member of Baker College. Upon graduation, Quintero was selected as a Baker Fellow and is currently an active associate to the college.
After graduation, Quintero taught seventh-grade Spanish at Houston's Holub Middle School before returning to Rice as a program assistant before the 1999-2000 season. He is a 1991 graduate of Bel Air High School in El Paso. Quintero still resides in Houston.
