Mississippi State Extends Women’s Basketball Head Coach Vic Schaefer’s Contract

NCAA Womens Basketball: Women's Final Four-Mississippi State vs Connecticut Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

College football is back, but that’s not the only great news that Mississippi State fans are receiving today. As David Murray of reports, John Cohen and the Mississippi State athletic department have reached a deal with women’s basketball head coach Vic Schaefer for four more years and with a somewhat notable pay raise.

This extension is clearly a good move after all that Schaefer has accomplished here in Starkville. Beating the seemingly unbeatable destroyer of worlds that is UConn and taking Mississippi State to new heights this past season, including a national championship berth, has helped build up the star coach’s resume.

So far, it appears that there’s no further details out other than what Murray has reported here. We’ll update this article as more comes out about Schaefer’s contract extension.
