Bear Lake’s Sam Mullet Appointed to Task Force on Women in Sports

BEAR LAKE – Bear Lake High School varsity offensive coordinator Sam Mullet was recently named to Michigan’s newly-created Task Force on Women in Sports.

Mullet is one of 14 members on the task force that Governor Gretchen Whitmer established after signing an executive order on Monday.

The goal of the task force is to develop strategies to promote opportunities in the state for women and girls in sports.

“One of the biggest things for me in high school was the leadership. I think it’s really important for us to find a way to make sure there’s good leadership on teams for women,” Mullet said. “They need really good role models, so I think that’s an important thing. I’m really excited to not only do things for the women in sports in Michigan but to learn from those other people that are on the committee too.”

In November 2018, we brought you a story about Mullet being one of few female offensive coordinators in the state of Michigan. Mullet also attended the NFL Women’s Careers in Football Forum in Indianapolis in February.

Mullet is joined on the task force by Penny Allen-Cook, the commissioner of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association; Dr. Ketra Armstrong, associate dean and professor of sport management and faculty athletics representative at the University of Michigan; Katy Beauregard, director of intercollegiate athletics at Western Michigan University; Keri Baker, a former collegiate coach and athletic administrator; Lorin Cartwright, a retired athletic director and athletic trainer at Ann Arbor Pioneer High School; Carolyn Cassin, the president and CEO of Michigan Women Forward; Dr. Judi Brown Clarke, the diversity director for the BEACON Center at Michigan State University; Cali Crawford, director of athletics at Schoolcraft College; Joanne C. Gerstner, an award-winning author and sports journalist; Jennifer Grange, an advocate for nonprofit and charitable causes; Mike Guswiler, who leads the West Michigan Sports Commission; Carol Hutchins, head softball coach at the University of Michigan and the winningest coach in NCAA history; and Erika Swilley, the senior director of community and social responsibility for the Detroit Pistons.
