Miami coach Katie Meier announces retirement

Katie Meier announced her retirement from coaching on Thursday after 19 seasons leading the Miami women’s basketball team.

Meier, 56, won 362 games, posted 11 20-win seasons and took the Hurricanes to 10 NCAA Tournament berths from 2005-24.

Meier, who had four years remaining on her contract, will remain with the university as a special adviser and an ambassador for the athletic department.

“Nineteen years ago, I was offered my dream job to be the head coach of the University of Miami, and while I have absolutely loved living that dream, it is with a heart full of pride and gratitude that I announce my retirement from coaching,” Meier said. “Miami is an incredibly special place, and my journey here has been an honor and a privilege. Today is a day to celebrate and reflect on the amazing success that was achieved through collaboration with outstanding people.”

Meier was named the Associated Press National Coach of the Year in 2010-11 and guided Miami to the Elite Eight at the 2023 NCAA Tournament.

“Her list of accomplishments speaks for itself, but her legacy extends far beyond the court,” athletic director Dan Radakovich said. “She has been an incredible ambassador not only for Miami basketball but for the sport of women’s basketball and for the University of Miami. We are excited to continue working with Katie as a member of the Hurricanes family.”

The Hurricanes finished 19-12 (8-10 Atlantic Coast Conference) this season, which ended with a 55-47 loss against Virginia Tech in the ACC tournament quarterfinals on March 8.

Meier, who played at Duke from 1985-90, began her coaching career at Charlotte in 2001-02 and went 76-45 over four seasons before taking over at Miami.
