Mulkey gets new Corvette from Allen Samuels

WACO, Texas (KWTX) After winning her third national championship, Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey was given a new Corvette to drive for one year by Allen Samuels.

The Corvette gift is a tradition between Allen Samuels dealerships and coach Mulkey. They gave her one to drive when she and the Lady Bears won their first title in 2005. They did it again in 2012. Now, she has a brand new, yellow Corvette to drive for the next year after this season's title.

Mulkey joked that the car is yellow because Samuels' wife wanted to give her a car that matched her shoes from regional finals.

Mulkey and Baylor will continue to celebrate on Thursday with a parade in downtown Waco.
