Nebraska extends Connie Yori contract through 2017
Nebraska women’s basketball coach Connie Yori has received a
two-year contract extension through 2017.
Athletic director Tom Osborne said Tuesday that Yori deserved to
be rewarded for a 2011-12 season in which the Cornhuskers went
24-9, including 10-6 in their first year in the Big Ten, and
advanced to the championship game of the conference tournament.
Yori, who earned a base salary of $660,000 last year, will be
paid $673,000 in 2012-13.
The Cornhuskers lost to Kansas in the first round of the NCAA
tournament and finished the season ranked No. 22.
Yori, entering her 11th season at Nebraska, has guided the
Huskers to eight postseason tournament appearances and more than 20
wins a season over the past nine years.
