Kim Mulkey leaves Baylor, takes over as LSU coach
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Hall of Fame coach Kim Mulkey has left Baylor to return home and take over the LSU women’s basketball team.
The school announced the move Sunday.
Mulkey, who won three national championships at Baylor, is a native of Tickfaw, Louisiana.
She is a legendary former Louisiana Tech basketball player and a former assistant coach to the Lady Techsters as well.
She helped Baylor win the 2019 NCAA championship, and the Bears lost in the regional finals to UConn last month.
Mulkey replaces Nikki Fargas, who stepped down earlier this week.
In 21 years as the head coach at Baylor, Mulkey led the Lady Bears to four Final Fours, winning three national titles.
Her teams reached the Elite Eight six times and the Sweet 16 on five other occasions.
