Dec. 8, 2006

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - With the continuing improvement of the JU women's basketball program, JU head coach Jill Dunn has signed a three-year contract extension that will keep her at JU until 2009.

The program advanced to the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament for the first time since 2001 a year ago, racking up 10 wins - the second highest total in school history.

"Jill has made significant progress with our women's basketball program," said JU Director of Athletics Alan Verlander. "Last season was a major step in the right direction. My goal is to keep great coaches at JU and Jill fits that description perfectly. I am excited that she will be around to continue what she has started."

Dunn sports a 20-41 record in the midst of her third season at JU, leading the Dolphins to a 4-2 start - including a school-best 4-0 start.
