Gender Neutral: DI Men's Head Coaches Who Previously Coached Females

Is there any doubt Michael Porter Sr. received a whopping three-year, $1.125 million contract as assistant coach at Missouri more for delivering two sons who are regal recruits rather than value of his one season of experience as an NCAA Division I men's coaching aide at Washington? But perhaps Mizzou also factored in worth of Porter's previous collegiate coaching experience as an assistant for the Tigers' female program. At any rate, how many current DI head coaches have coaching women at collegiate or professional level on their resumes? Former Maryland All-American Juan Dixon, new mentor for Coppin State, is among four HBCU head coaches on the following alphabetical list of bench bosses in this unique category:
