Muffet McGraw is an American basketball coach who is currently the head women's basketball coach at Notre Dame.
Sarah leads a round table discussion with Pro Basketball Hall of Famer Tamika Catchings, former Notre Dame Women's head basketball coach Muffet McGraw and the University of Tennessee's Athletic Director Phillip Fulmer on women in leadership roles. The discussion is a part of espnW's When We Play initiative celebrating the 48th anniversary of the passing of Title IX.
Just in time for March Madness, Katie talks with legendary Notre Dame women’s basketball coach Muffet McGraw about how the Hall of Famer is working to diversify college sports, the failures of Title IX, and why we need more women leaders on and off the court. Then, Carla Williams—athletic director at the University of Virginia and the first black woman to hold the position at a Power Five school— talks candidly about the pressures of being a pioneer in a male-dominated field, and why the burden to diversify college sports shouldn’t rest solely with women and people of color. Later, some of Muffet’s former players, including Memphis Grizzlies assistant coach Niele Ivey, reveal what it meant to have a mentor like Muffet to look up to—and how her strength continues to inspire them long after leaving campus.
