Stanford women's basketball coach Tara VanDerveer has received a new long-term contract.
The Hall of Fame coach said Wednesday that she signed a new deal but did not offer specifics, nor did the school, other than indicating it's a multiyear contract. She had two years left on her previous contract, through the 2014-15 season.
The Cardinal reached the Women's Final Four for five straight years before falling short in March, VanDerveer's 27th season at Stanford. Georgia beat Stanford 61-59 in the NCAA tournament's Spokane Regional semifinals. VanDerveer, 60, has a 742-152 record at Stanford and a 894-203 career mark.
"Tara VanDerveer is one of the great educators in the game," athletic director Bernard Muir said.
