Hall of Fame women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey is leaving Baylor after 21 seasons to join LSU as head coach.
LSU announced Mulkey was named the new head coach Sunday, April 25. In 21 seasons with Baylor, Mukley won three national championships as head coach, two as a play and one as an assistant coach.
Mulkey will be returning to her home state to coach the Lady Tigers. A Tickfaw, LA native Mulkey is an accomplished coach and player. She’s won a gold medal on the 1984 Olympic Team and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020.
