“We are very excited to add Erin to our staff,” said Moody. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our program.

Her success with recruiting is well documented, and she will help to insure that we continue to attract the top level athletes to South Carolina.”

Mullins obtained a Master’s degree in Sport Management in 2013 from Indiana State while coaching for two seasons at DePauw University, which earned third place in the program’s first two season in the North Coast Athletic Conference.
She is a 2011 Summa cum Laude graduate of the University of Cincinnati, where she lettered four times and captained the Bearcats for two seasons. She was a two-time Big East Championships finalist and a four-time All-Big East Academic Team member.
