Keitha Adams, Wichita State agree to 2-year contact extension

WICHITA, Kan. (RELEASE) Wichita State athletic director Darron Boatright announced Wednesday morning that women's basketball head coach Keitha Adams has agreed to a two-year contract extension through 2024.

Adams is 26-35 in her first two seasons at Wichita State, including a 14-18 mark in American Athletic Conference play. This past season Adams had to replace eight seniors from the 2017-18 season to field the fifth youngest team in the country.

"We are committed to Coach Adams and her continued leadership of our women's basketball program," Boatright said. "Her passion and excitement for Wichita State is contagious. We look forward to helping make her vision for this program a reality."

"I'm extremely honored to be the head women's basketball coach at Wichita State," Adams said. "I appreciate the support and commitment from the administration as we continue to work hard to build this program."

Wichita State will bring back nine letterwinners for the 2019-20 campaign, including three starters from a season ago. A strong backcourt will be anchored by American Athletic Conference All-Freshman Team honoree Carla Bremaud and starting point guard Seraphine Bastin.

Prior to coming to Wichita State, Adams spent 16 seasons at UTEP where she led the Miners to six 20-win seasons and two NCAA Tournament appearances. She left as the school's all-time wins leader.
