Continuing a spree of coaches' contract extensions this week, UCF wrapped Friday by announcing Head Women's Basketball Coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson has agreed to a one-year contract extension of her own through the 2023-2024 season.
Terms, of course, have not been disclosed.
Tolu Omokore tweeted that she was pretty excited about it though:
Coach Abe has clearly placed UCF Women's Basketball on a positive trajectory since coming over from Albany to replace Joi Williams. UCF has gone 43-23 in her two seasons so far and made the NIT second round twice.
Last year was probably her best coaching job yet, as the Knights won 22 games - one more than her first year - despite losing Omokore and Fifi N'dour, their regular starting power forward and center, to season-ending injuries.
Coach Abe is also the fourth UCF coach to receive a contract extension in the last two weeks:

Coach Abe and the Knights hope to get to the next level of postseason play this year. The Knights' last conference championship and NCAA Tournament appearance was in 2011.
