On April 28, 2008, Cullop came to The University of Toledo with the daunting task of rebuilding a Mid-American Conference powerhouse. Fast forward seven seasons and Cullop and her squads have hung five postseason banners, including a 2011 WNIT Championship banner, two MAC regular-season title banners and four West Division banners from the rafters of Savage Arena. Considering the Rockets experienced five consecutive losing campaigns prior to Cullop’s arrival, UT’s quick turnaround has truly been a testament to her coaching ability.
Under Cullop’s guidance, the Midnight Blue and Gold has amassed an impressive 160-74 overall record and an 84-32 conference mark. Individually, eight Rockets have earned All-MAC honors on 18 occasions. And she has been recognized for her work at UT by the conference and the Russell Athletic/Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.
The Satellites Auxiliary is a volunteer group designed to promote education, research and service programs; provide support of patient programs in accordance with the needs and approval of administration; conduct fundraising events; and provide services.
