Mystics Head Coach and General Manager Mike Thibault has signed a multi-year contract extension, according to a Wednesday morning press release from the team.
Thibault, the winningest coach in WNBA history, has been with the team since 2012 and helped lead Washington to a WNBA Championship (2019), two WNBA Finals appearances (2018, 2019) and seven total postseason appearances (2013-2015, 2017-2020).
“After our last two years with the pandemic and injuries, I am looking forward to getting back to a full, healthy team,” said Thibault in the press release. “I am excited for the offseason and what we can do to reset our team.”
