(WCYB) — The Tennessee Lady Vols have extended the contract of Head Women's Basketball Coach Kellie Harper through the 2027-28 season.
The UT Ladies are coming off of back-to-back appearances in the Sweet 16. Harper is in her fourth season as head coach and the Lady Vols had their highest win total at 25 and highest number of SEC wins at 13, since the 2014-15 season.
"I couldn't be more thankful for the belief and trust Danny and Tennessee have placed in me and my staff to lead the Lady Vol program where we all want to go," Harper said. "The journey to the top isn't easy, but I'm really proud of the investment our players have displayed in pursuing our goals and fighting through some adversity along the way.
"By playing in the 2023 SEC Tournament title game and advancing to regionals, we have built a solid foundation for next season. I can't wait to see what we can achieve together during the years ahead."
