Maryland lost five starters from last year’s Big Ten championship team, but still went 26-3 and won the conference for the sixth time in its seven years in the league in 2021. The Terrapins reached the Sweet 16 at the NCAAs.
Frese is the winningest coach in Maryland women’s basketball history, surpassing 500 victories this season, and is 512-131 at the school, a .796 winning percentage.
She is 569-161 overall as a college head coach, including previous stints at Minnesota and Ball State.
In March, Frese was honored as AP coach of the year for the second time. Geno Auriemma, Muffet McGraw and Kim Mulkey are the only other women’s basketball coaches to win the award more than once.
