Guest: Tricia Cullop, Toledo Head Coach


Toledo head coach Tricia Cullop joins the Basketball Podcast to share insights on how to build by culture and the blue collar gold standard.


As the winningest coach in University of Toledo Women’s Basketball history, Head Coach Tricia Cullop has transformed the program into a nationally-recognized powerhouse. The 2022 WBCA Carol Eckman Integrity in Coaching Award is a testament to her success in creating space for authenticity and community on and off the court throughout her 30-year coaching career.


Under her leadership, Toledo has made nine trips to the postseason and has hung five championship banners, including a postseason WNIT title in 2011, a MAC Championship in 2017, and three MAC regular-season championships (2010-11, 2012-13, and 2021-22). The Rockets’ 2011 WNIT Championship was the first major postseason tournament title won by a Mid-American Conference team. Cullop has been named MAC Coach of the Year a record-tying four times (2009, 2011, 2013, and 2022).
