Matilda Mossman readjusting to college game
Former Norman High girls basketball coach Matilda Mossman, who in March accepted the women’s head coaching job at the University of Tulsa, said this July has been a lot different than the past 10 for her.
“It’s July, and that used to be my month off,” Mossman said with a laugh. “This is a big recruiting time for us, so this July, I think I’ve had three days off. But I’m enjoying it; I like getting out and seeing kids.”
Mossman was a college in coach at Arkansas (1981-84) and Kansas State (1984-89). She became Norman’s girls coach in 2002.
She said the college game hadn’t changed much in her opinion, but the biggest difference for her was in the technology.
“Instead of kids writing us, they are sending us e-mails with links to watch them play on YouTube,” Mossman said.
Mossman spoke at the Oklahoma Coaches’ Association’s annual coaches clinic in Tulsa. She said her talk was about getting the little things right when running an offense.
