By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The LSU Tigers have hit a home run. No, not on the baseball diamond.

But with their latest coaching addition. The school announced Hall of Famer Kim Mulkey as their new women’s basketball head coach.

She returns home with this coaching moving, as she grew up in Tickfaw, Louisiana. She also attended Hammond High School, where she guided the team to four straight state championships.

Mulkey is replacing Nikki Fargas, who stepped down from the job on Saturday. She is expected to become the Las Vegas Aces President, according to reports.

The 58-year-old spent 21 seasons leading the Baylor Bears women’s basketball team. She went 631-104 with the Bears, including three Championship seasons.

“Kim Mulkey is a champion and a Hall of Famer, and we are thrilled to welcome her home,” Tigers Athletic Director Scott Woodward said in a statement. “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 never had a losing season with the Bears. In her final season, she guided the team to a 27-3 record.

She’s taking over a program that went 9-13 in 2020-21.
