Seattle signs coach Agler to extension

Sep 14, 2009 - 9:35 PM SEATTLE(AP) -- Just before the start of the WNBA playoffs, the Seattle Storm have signed coach Brian Agler to a two-year contract extension.

Agler's deal covers the 2010 and 2011 seasons with an option for 2012.

Agler is the third coach in Seattle's history, following Lin Dunn and Anne Donovan. He's directed Seattle to a second consecutive playoff appearance, thanks largely to All-Stars Sue Bird and Lauren Jackson.

Seattle won a franchise record 22 games in Agler's first season, then won 20 games this season. They open the playoffs on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

Before coming to Seattle, Agler was an assistant in San Antonio and Phoenix, and a head coach with the Minnesota Lynx.
