Doesn't Kim Mulkey-Robertson deserve a bullet point of her own?

She played on two national championship teams (LaTech '81 and '82), was assistant/associate coach for one (LaTech '88), and as head coach won the national championship in 2005 for Baylor.

This chart is for head coaching only. The notations are so people know that the individual is coaching elsewhere.

-- Thanks.
