WACO, Texas -
Baylor Lady Bear women's basketball coach Kim Mulkey announced Wednesday that Jennifer Roberts has returned to the Lady Bear staff and will serve as Coordinator of Basketball Operations. Roberts served as a Baylor assistant coach from 2000-08.
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.
