Mississippi, women's basketball coach Matt Insell agree to contract extension through 2018-19


OXFORD, Mississippi — Mississippi has extended the contract of women's basketball coach Matt Insell through the 2018-19 season.

The 32-year-old Insell — who just finished his second year with the program — led the Rebels to a 19-14 record last season, including a 7-9 mark in the Southeastern Conference. Ole Miss made its first trip to the postseason since the 2009-10 season, advancing to the third round of the Women's National Invitation Tournament.

The four-year contract is the longest allowed by the state and includes a base salary of $475,000 per year. The school announced the extension on Wednesday.

Insell said in a statement he's "excited about the future of our program and I am grateful to Rebel Nation for the support they have shown our program and staff."
