Matilda Mossman was appointed as the head women’s basketball coach at The University of Tulsa. Most recently a prep coach in Oklahoma, Mossman previously held head coaching stints on the collegiate level at both the University of Arkansas and Kansas State University.

In over 16 years as a head coach, Mossman has compiled a 341-148 record for a .697 winning percentage. She has served as a head collegiate coach for eight years, while coaching on the high school level for the last nine seasons.

“I’m extremely excited about the opportunity that exists at The University of Tulsa. We can be successful here. I think we have the right kind of athletes in place, where we’ll just need to plug a few positions. I’m looking forward to it. I think it will be a great experience,” says Mossman.

“We’re extremely pleased to welcome Matilda Mossman to the TU family. She has achieved success both on the collegiate level at Arkansas and Kansas State, and recently as a high school coach. Matilda has had teams win a Big Eight Conference Championship at Kansas State and a state title at Norman High School,” says Cunningham. “She is motivated, enthusiastic and has an infectious personality. Matilda has created great relationships throughout the state and the basketball community.”

In eight years as a collegiate head coach, Mossman registered an overall 150-95 record. She had a 67-27 mark in three seasons at Arkansas and an 83-68 mark at Kansas State in five years.
