New Nebraska women's coach gets 5-year deal, $575,000 salary
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska athletic director Shawn Eichorst says new women's basketball coach Amy Williams is receiving a five-year contract paying $575,000 annually.
Williams was introduced at a news conference Tuesday. She replaces Connie Yori, who resigned last week amid allegations she mistreated and overworked players. Yori has denied any wrongdoing.
Williams earned $180,000 a year at South Dakota.
The 41-year-old Williams played at Nebraska from 1994-98.
Williams was 96-44 in four years at South Dakota, including a 32-6 mark with the WNIT championship this past season. Her teams won two Summit League regular-season championships, one conference tournament championship, and the Coyotes reached the NCAA Tournament in 2014.
