UNCASVILLE, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – WNBA coach of the year Curt Miller has received a contract extension from the Connecticut Sun.
Miller, who also serves as the team’s general manager, was heading into the last year of a three-year deal.
The team did not disclose financial terms of the new contract, which is designed to keep Miller in Connecticut through the 2021 season.
Miller guided the Sun to a 21-13 record, despite the loss of star forward Chiney Ogwumike to an offseason injury and a 1-5 start. The Sun lost 88-83 to the Phoenix Mercury in the second round of the playoffs.
Miller says he’s excited that the Sun’s ownership is committed to his long-term vision for the team.
Ogwumike says the team is also excited to see Connecticut protect what Miller is building.
