When Baylor’s Kim Mulkey announced she was leaving the Lady Bears’ program, it shocked the college basketball world. People were surprised that a coach with her type of legacy would leave her school at 58 years old.
Then again, it’s not all that surprising. She grew up 47 miles away from Baton Rouge, home of the LSU Lady Tigers. In addition, her son attended LSU. Her daughter and son were born in north Louisiana. She has obvious connections.
