From 2021-22 through 2025-26, the contract guarantees compensation of $5.5 million (beginning at $1 million in year one), plus performance incentives and retention bonuses. Stringer, who last signed a four-year extension before the 2017-18 season, will enter her 27th season at the helm of the Scarlet Knights.

The first coach to ever lead three different programs to the Final Four, Stringer has guided Rutgers to 17 NCAA Tournament berths, including two trips to the Final Four and a National Championship appearance.

Stringer and the Scarlet Knights have posted a record of 58-24 for a .707 winning percentage over the past three seasons, finishing third in the 14-member Big Ten in two of the last three years, never finishing lower than fifth during that span.

Mildly surprise, I thought maybe with some of her players leaving maybe they got wind that she would be retiring. Not saying she should, her teams are usually very solid.

Pretty awesome for Coach Stringer! Impactful coach on the court, in the classroom, and in the community. She loves what she is doing & doing it well. She can still recruit with the best of them. Congrats, Coach!!
