Ole Miss women's basketball coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin has agreed to a new contract through 2026

OXFORD, Miss. -- Mississippi women's basketball coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin has agreed to a new contract running through 2026 after leading the Rebels to their first NCAA tournament in 15 years.

The school announced the new deal on Thursday but didn't disclose details.

McPhee-McCuin led Ole Miss to its first NCAA tournament since 2007 in her fourth season. The Rebels set a single-season school record with 142 blocked shots and held 10 opponents under 50 points.

Ole Miss won 10 Southeastern Conference games and had its best league finish since 1993. A No. 24 ranking in the Associated Press poll on Jan. 24 was the Rebels' first appearance since 2007.

Center Shakira Austin became the highest-drafted Ole Miss player when she was selected third overall by the Washington Mystics in the April WNBA draft.
