The Minnesota Lynx announced on Friday head coach and general manager Cheryl Reeve has been signed to a multi-year contract extension.

Terms of the deal were not released, per team policy.


"I am grateful to Glen and Becky for their ongoing support and commitment," said Reeve in a statement. "We have shared an incredible decade of Lynx basketball together, both on and off the court, and look forward to the years ahead."

Reeve wrapped up her 10th season as Lynx head coach in 2019, her second in the dual role of head coach and general manager.
