San Francisco coach Jennifer Azzi earns contract extension

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco coach Jennifer Azzi has earned a five-year contract extension that keeps her leading the Dons program through the 2019-20 season.

Athletic director Scott Sidwell announced the new deal Friday for Azzi, a former Stanford star under Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer.

The Dons have made big strides during Azzi’s first five seasons, going 19-14 last season with a trip to the West Coast Conference tournament title game and a berth into the Women’s NIT. It was the program’s first postseason appearance since the 2001-02 season.
