Bo Overton

Meet Our People – The Enduring Spirit of the Chickasaw Nation

A native of Norman, Oklahoma, Bo Overton grew up loving the Oklahoma Sooners and the sport of basketball in particular. He was the starting point guard during his tenure at OU, later following in the footsteps of his father and uncles to become a basketball coach for the OU Women's Team, the Women's Chinese Basketball Association, the WNBA's Tulsa Shock and many other teams across the globe. Today, he coaches the women's team at Oklahoma City University and says he stands in awe of the power of the female athlete. Bo counts the support of his family, friends and the Chickasaw Nation in general as helping him persevere throughout his career.
