Mulkey diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy
WACO, Texas — Baylor head women’s basketball coach and former Louisiana Tech University guard and assistant coach Kim Mulkey has been diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy, school officials announced today.
“I noticed while we were in Des Moines last week that my tongue felt strange. Yesterday I noticed when I smiled, only the left side of my mouth was working. Also, my right eye was drooping and I couldn’t hear properly out of my right ear. Our trainer, Alex Olson, examined me before practice and it was decided I needed immediate medical care. Instead of going to practice, I went to the doctor,” said Mulkey.
