CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Miami Hurricanes have agreed to a new contract extension with women's basketball coach Katie Meier.

Meier's extension runs through the 2021 season.

"We are thrilled that Coach Meier has agreed to lead our women's basketball program through the 2021 season," Director of Athletics Blake James said. "Katie embodies the values of this institution, and her dedication to her student-athletes, this university and our community is unmatched."

Meier, who has been at the helm of the women's basketball program at Miami since 2005, led the Hurricanes to their fifth straight postseason appearance this past season.

Meier has posted 163 wins with three NCAA tournament appearances in her time in Coral Gables. In 2013, Meier was named a co-recipient of the USA Basketball National Coach of the Year award after leading the USA U19 team to a gold medal and perfect 9-0 record at the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championships.
