"The accomplishments of our women's basketball program have certainly exceeded our expectations," athletic director David Blackburn said. "Coach Foster has improved upon the program's tradition of excellence, and we want him to finish his Hall of Fame career here at UTC."

Foster was named Southern Conference Coach of the Year after his team upset No. 4 Tennessee and No. 7 Stanford last season.

The 66-year-old previously coached St. Joseph's (1978-91), Vanderbilt (1991-2002) and Ohio State (2002-13).
