Tigers Win: Kim Mulkey

Kim Mulkey is hungry.

Not just for po-boys and Ponchatoula strawberries — though she’s missed them dearly during her time away from Louisiana.

She’s hungry to win, and that appetite has never been satiated. Not after three championships as a head coach, two as a player, and one as an assistant. Not after an Olympic gold medal in 1984 or more than 600 career wins since 2000.

Mulkey also senses a hunger in Louisiana, as she comes back home to take over the reins at LSU after 21 years away from her home state.

Why return now? For the same reason she left then: God’s timing.

About Tigers Win:

Tigers Win is a podcast about excellence. Each episode, we’ll pick the brains of LSU coaches, student athletes, staff members, or alumni about the routines, habits, tools, mindsets, and attributes they’ve utilized to excel in their crafts. Hundreds of champions walk the stately oaks and broad magnolias of the Ole War Skule every year. This is your chance to get inside the mind of world class performers, learn what makes them elite, and how you can apply their lessons to your life and develop your own winning mentality.
