PULLMAN – Washington State and women’s head volleyball coach Jen Greeny have agreed to a restructured contract, Cougars Director of Athletics Bill Moos announced on Wednesday. The agreement will run through June of 2022.

“Jen has done a remarkable job of building Cougar Volleyball,” Moos said. “I was extremely pleased with our performance this past season and am looking forward to watching the program continue to grow under her leadership.”

Greeny was named the Pac-12 Coach of the Year after leading the Cougars to an 11-9 Pac-12 record, tied for fifth place and the most conference wins for the Cougars since 2002. WSU roared to a 22-12 overall record; the most wins in a season since 2002, and tied for fifth-best all-time wins in school history.

The Cougars won their first NCAA Tournament match in 14 seasons with a defeat of Marquette before falling to No. 3 seed Wisconsin in Madison. WSU ended the 2016 season ranked No. 24 in the Final AVCA Coaches Poll.

Additionally, WSU had six players named to the Pac-12 All-Academic teams in the 2016 season.

“I am very thankful that the Washington State University Athletics administration believes in what we are doing and has seen our progress and commitment to excellence in the sport of volleyball at WSU,” Greeny said. “I am excited for the future of Cougar volleyball.”

The Cougars will have 11 veteran players from the 2016 squad for the Fall 2017 season.
