Baylor hires Toyelle Wilson away from Prairie View A&M

Posted: Updated:

Toyelle Wilson, the most successful women's basketball coach in the history of Prairie View A&M, left the Lady Panthers to join one of the top women's programs in the nation.

Wilson resigned on Monday to become an assistant coach for Lady Bears head coach Kim Mulkey at Baylor.

"This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from one of the best, to be around one of the best and one of the best institutions in Baylor University," Wilson said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports.

Wilson led the Lady Panthers to three consecutive SWAC championships, first time that's happened in school history.

Wilson's overall record at Prairie View A&M is 55-43, 36-18 in the SWAC.

"It's an amazing moment," Wilson said. "I'm so humbled and excited about the opportunity.

"I'm ready to hit the ground running. I just thank Coach Mulkey for having faith in me and I'm going to definitely prove to her every day that I was the right choice for the position."
