LSU Set to Ink Record Breaking Deal with Basketball Coach Kim Mulkey
LSU Women's Basketball Coach Kim Mulkey isn't done breaking records in Louisiana and we're here for it. Seriously, we're all about women finding success in sports and we may be a little bit biased since Coach Kim is a Louisiana girl herself who helped to bring home a national title for the LSU Lady Tigers in her second year at the helm of the program earlier this year. Here's looking at you coach with a mighty purple and gold, 'You GEAUX girl!'
What are the details behind LSU Women's Basketball Coach Kim Mulkey's contract extension?
According to ESPN, LSU Women's Basketball Coach Kim Mulkey has a new 10-year contract worth $32 million awaiting her signature. However, first, the deal has to be approved by the LSU board of supervisors, who are scheduled to meet tomorrow, Friday, September 8, 2023. With a national championship under her belt and the revenue the school has enjoyed as a result and will continue to rake in, we can't imagine they'll balk at the deal. Experts say, that when the deal is complete, it'll be the biggest total contract in women's college basketball history.
What was LSU Women's Basketball Coach Kim Mulkey making in her original contract?
When Coach Kim made the move to Louisiana to take the helm for the LSU Lady Tigers during the spring of 2021, she signed an eight-year deal that would pay $22.5 million before incentives. We call that a good return on their investment.
