New LSU coach Kim Mulkey does her best Coach O impression upon meeting Ed Orgeron
LSU made a big move over the weekend, hiring 3-time national champion Kim Mulkey away from Baylor to run the Tigers’ women’s basketball program.
Mulkey grew up in Louisiana and went to college at Louisiana Tech. Now, she’s back in the Bayou State to try to bring LSU a title.
On Monday, she met football coach Ed Orgeron for the first time, and it was great. She playfully scolded Coach O for calling her “ma’am” and also did an impression of Coach O:
"Coach O! How you doin' man??!"
"What's up Coach? Comment ca va? Welcome home."
Kim Mulkey breaks out an Ed Orgeron impression, Coach O breaks out some French.

It was pretty cool to hear Coach O break out the French, too. Those are 2 title-winning coaches who will now call the same athletic department home.
LSU hasn’t made an NCAA Tournament on the women’s side since 2018 and hasn’t won a game in the tournament since 2014, though, so Mulkey will have her work cut out for her.
