UMaine women’s basketball coach Amy Vachon and the school have agreed to terms on a new four-year contract that keeps her in Orono through June of 2025.
Vachon took over as interim coach in March of 2018 and later signed a four-year deal. This new contract will replace the existing deal.
“Thank you to President Joan Ferrini-Mundy and Director of Athletics Ken Ralph for their belief in me and Maine women’s basketball,” says Vachon. “Being the head coach at my alma mater is something I have and will continue to take great pride in. Our players, staff, and coaches will continue to strive for excellence on the court, in the classroom, and in the community.” – UMaine Release
