Kim Mulkey has been a gutsy trailblazer her entire life. Growing up in Hammond, Louisiana, she was the first girl in her hometown to play on an all-boys baseball team. And she is the only woman or man to win an NCAA championship as a player (twice at Louisiana Tech), as an assistant coach, and as coach (at Baylor). In Won't Back Down , Mulkey describes her upbringing, including her first encounter with racism; her departure from Louisiana Tech after a nasty squabble with the administration over the head coaching job; and how she rejuvenated a struggling Baylor program and turned it into a national champion. Laying out her coaching philosophy and the challenges of recruiting and coaching players today, Mulkey also discusses the many obstacles she has overcome in her personal and professional life.
