DURHAM, N.H. - University of New Hampshire athletic director Marty Scarano announced Wednesday that sixth-year women's basketball head coach Sue Johnson has signed a multi-year contract extension.

"I am pleased that Sue will be with us in the future," said Scarano. "She has proven herself an excellent leader for the UNH women's basketball program and we feel her experience and coaching ability will take the team to the top of America East women's basketball."

Last season, Johnson led the Wildcats to the semifinals of the America East tournament and a fourth-place conference finish. In five years in Durham, Johnson has posted a career 70-69 record and led the program to its first postseason appearance in history in 1999 when the squad posted 19 wins and was awarded a berth to the WNIT.

The UNH women's basketball team is scheduled to open the season November 22, when they host Manhattan College in a 7:00 p.m. contest.
