We have so much to look forward to together! I believe through leading, empowering, challenging and loving our players well, we will reap great success. I’m eager to hit the ground running as we build on the legacy here at Mississippi State. Hail State!”

Before landing at Long Beach State, Maxoutopoulis was a graduate assistant for two years at Georgia Southern University, where she received her master’s degree in Public Administration and Non-Profit Management.
