5/25/2021 12:18:09 PM EST
Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese agreed to a contract extension that effectively runs through the 2027-28 season.
Financial terms were not disclosed, however the Washington Post reported the deal begins next month with a base salary of $1.4 million.
Frese, 51, was named as the 2021 national coach of the year by the Associated Press after guiding the Terrapins to a 26-3 record. The team won the Big Ten regular-season championship and the conference tournament before falling to Texas in the Sweet 16.
"Coach Frese has shown consistent excellence on and off the court throughout her 19 years here at Maryland," Terrapins athletic director Damon Evans said. "Coach Frese's teams have shown unprecedented success in the Big Ten and have sustained success among the nation's best. Her program is a model for many because the student-athletes she brings to Maryland are simply the best of the best. We wanted to make sure she is leading our Terrapins for many years to come."
Frese owns a 512-131 coaching record at Maryland and 569-161 overall mark that includes stops at Minnesota and Ball State. She won the national championship in 2006 with the Terrapins.
"First of all, I am grateful that Maryland believes in our program," Frese said. "Maryland is really a place where student-athletes can have it all. We take great pride in the name on the front of our uniforms and representing an elite university.
"... I am honored and humbled to have led this program the past 19 years and am so proud of the national power we have rebuilt and sustained. I am looking forward to what lies ahead in the future and making some more Maryland magic."
