Marketing the Lady Tigers Basketball Program
Speaker: Coach Nikki Caldwell
LSU Women's Basketball Head Coach Nikki Caldwell will visit us in September to discuss her plans for marketing the Lady Tigers Basketball Program, and plans for the upcoming season.
Nikki Caldwell, who won national championships as both a player and an assistant coach at Tennessee and turned UCLA into a national power in just three years, enters her first season as Head Coach of the LSU Women's Basketball Program. Caldwell brings to LSU the combination of outstanding in-game coaching ability with that of being a tremendous recruiter. She was officially introduced as the school's seventh women's basketball coach on April 4, 2011.
After graduating with a degree in public relations in 1994, Caldwell moved behind the microphone as a color analyst on Tennessee games for Fox Sports Net South. She went on to become the color analyst for the SEC's Game of the Week from 1995-1997. Her television exposure opened the door for her to become the hostess of the sports segments for the Knoxville-based cable network show, Shop at Home (1997-1998). Caldwell's television career continued in Los Angeles during her tenure as UCLA coach. She joined CBS2/KCAL's Jim Hill as an analyst on Sports Central for the NCAA men's basketball tournament and she was also frequently on Los Angeles Laker pregame and halftime shows. Caldwell served as an analyst for ESPN during the 2011 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament.
In her 14 seasons as a collegiate player, graduate assistant and assistant coach, Caldwell's teams compiled a record of 404-76, appeared in the NCAA Tournament each year and claimed three national championships.
