"Kim Mulkey is a champion and a Hall of Famer, and we are thrilled to welcome her home," said LSU Athletics Director Scott Woodward. "Her accomplishments are unprecedented, her passion is unrivaled, and her commitment to winning in all aspects of life – in the classroom, on the court, and in the community – is unparalleled. We look forward to working with her as she instills that championship culture at LSU."
Mulkey grew up in Tickfaw and attended Louisiana Tech where she was later an assistant coach. Mulkey is currently the head coach at Baylor. She has coached Baylor to three national titles and won championships as both a player and coach at Louisiana Tech.
Mulkey will replace Nikki Fargas, who announced her official departure Saturday.
Fargas made about $700,000 at LSU; Mulkey took home more than $2 million at Baylor.
