The Monroe (LA) News Star reported yesterday that legendary women's basketball coach Leon Barmore who retired from La Tech after 20 seasons has gotten back in the game as an assistant coach with his former Assistant Head Coach Kim Mulkey of Baylor.
Leon had been offered numerous opportunities to become the head coach at much larger schools, but he said he did not want to take on all that goes with being a head coach again. Kim Mulkey is one of the best and brightest of the young head coaches, and she took the Baylor job when Leon retired and the dumbass AD at Tech, a local redneck named Jim Oakes, would not offer her a decent contract. He tried to lowball her, would not give her four years after she had been coaching there as Barmore's assistant for many years after she was an All American at Tech. She took the job at Baylor, which was vacated by the first ever woman's coach at La Tech. With Barmore's unmatched ability to get the most out of his players and Kim's fiery, hard driving coaching style, I think
Baylor is going to be a team that will compete for the national championship every year. Watch out UConn and Tenn.

A man has got to know his limitations.
