EDITORIAL: Coach Mulkey’s anger is one part of Baylor’s festering frustration over scandal
27 February 2017
No doubt excited by her 500th coaching win and the Baylor Lady Bears’ Big 12 Championship following a pummeling of the Red Raiders Saturday, Lady Bears Coach Kim Mulkey abruptly offered an unvarnished defense of Baylor University amid furor over a plague of sexual assaults. If she meant to provoke, she got her wish.
Likely referring to fiery ESPN pundit Stephen A. Smith and others advising parents against sending their daughters to Baylor, Mulkey declared: “If somebody around you ever says, ‘I will never send my daughter to Baylor,’ you knock them right in the face. Because these kids [Lady Bears athletes] are on campus and I work here and my daughter went to school here and it’s the damn best school in America.”
