Baylor Women's Basketball Retains Assistant Coach Jennifer Roberts On Staff

After the tremendous success of the women’s basketball program at Baylor over the last decade, it’s understandable that other programs would look to poach the university’s coaching staff. The Lady Bears, after all, are the very model of success with two national championships over the last eight seasons. However, Kim Mulkey retained key assistant coach and recruiter Jennifer Roberts in an announcement today by the school’s athletic department.

From the release:

Roberts originally came to Baylor with Mulkey in 2000 and played an integral part in the program’s rapid rise on the national scene. The Shreveport, La., native and 1997 Louisiana Tech graduate was one of Baylor’s top recruiters, helping land three top 25 classes which played a large role in Baylor’s then-three Sweet 16 appearances and the 2005 NCAA national championship.

“I am pleased to be back on a college campus and excited that Coach Mulkey has given me the opportunity to work with the Lady Bear staff and players. I’ve really missed being a part of the collegiate environment and look forward to once again being a part of the Lady Bear basketball program,” said Roberts.

Mulkey and Roberts return for their 13th season at Baylor next fall.
