COLUMBIA, MO- Mizzou women's basketball head coach Robin Pingeton is in her second year at the reigns of the program after being hired to replace Cindy Stein, and she's already being offered a second contract extension.
"We are excited to extend Robin's contract," said Missouri Athletic Director Mike Alden. "She and her staff have continued to take the program in the right direction on the court, in the classroom and out in the community. They know how to build a program the right way and we're excited about the future of Mizzou women's basketball and thankful to have Robin as a representative of the Athletic Department and the entire University of Missouri."
Pingeton, who was named head coach on April 8th, 2010, will see her current contract expire on April 8th, 2016. The proposed extension will keep her on the MU sidelines through the 2017 season.
"I am extremely grateful and appreciative of Mike Alden and the administrators at Missouri for having the confidence in me and my staff to lead the Missouri Women's Basketball team and for having the confidence to extend my contract for another year," said Pingeton.
Coach Pingeton also served at St. Ambrose from 1992-2000 where she amassed a 194-76 record, and at Illinois State from 2003-10, where she went 144-81 overall. In her two years at Mizzou, she has accumulated a 13-18, 5-11 record in 2010-11 and a 12-16, 2-15 record in 2011-12, prior to Saturday's season finale in Stillwater, OK.
