Head coach Cheryl Reeve, who led the Lynx to a WNBA title in 2011 and back to the finals in 2012, signed a multi-year contract extension Thursday, the team announced. Terms were not disclosed.

"We are very happy to announce a multi-year contract extension with one of the league's best coaches, Cheryl Reeve," Lynx Executive VP Roger Griffith said in a statement. "Three years ago, we gave Cheryl the opportunity as head coach of the Lynx based on her extensive experience as assistant coach in the WNBA and glowing recommendations from her colleagues. The decision has paid off . ... We are extremely happy to continue the relationship and look forward to even better things in the future."

Reeve's .657 winning percentage ranks second in WNBA history after leading the Lynx to back-to-back 27-7 seasons. She has coached the Lynx for three seasons, winning WNBA Coach of the Year honors in 2011.

"We have a great thing going here in Minnesota -- great players, great staff and great fans -- and I'm very grateful to be in this situation," Reeve said.
