BOSTON - Head women's basketball coach Kelly Greenberg has signed a two-year contract extension effective through the 2013-14 season, Boston University assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics Mike Lynch announced today.
"We could not be prouder that Kelly will be our head women's basketball coach for many years to come," Lynch said. "Although her contract had three years remaining on it, we felt very strongly that she has earned, and deserves, an even greater level of commitment from Boston University."
The 2009 America East Coach of the Year, Greenberg led the Terriers to a 25-8 record this season, capturing the program's first regular-season championship in 20 years. With a 16-0 mark in conference play, BU was one of just four Division I women's basketball programs this year to post an undefeated record in its conference. The Terriers advanced to the conference tournament championship game for the fourth time in five years under her watch.
By virtue of its regular-season championship, BU participated in postseason competition for just the second time in its 34-year history when it received a bid to the WNIT. The Terriers earned the program's first postseason win with a 79-60 home victory over Central Connecticut State in the first round.
"I am very grateful to Mike Lynch and to Boston University for this new agreement," Greenberg said. "BU is a great place and I truly enjoy being a part of this community. My staff and I look forward to continue building a strong basketball program."Greenberg is the first BU women's basketball coach to win 20 games in consecutive seasons. Her record at BU stands at 93-63, and her career mark, which includes five seasons as head coach at Penn, is 177-117.
