The Washington Mystics signed head coach and general manager Mike Thibault to a multi-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday.

"After our last two years with the pandemic and injuries, I am looking forward to getting back to a full, healthy team," Thibault, 71, said in a statement. "I am excited for the offseason and what we can do to reset our team."

Since joining the team prior to the 2013 season, the three-time Coach of the Year has amassed a regular-season record of 151-141, with seven playoff appearances and Washington's lone WNBA championship in 2019.

Including his 10-year run with the Connecticut Sun from 2003 to 2012, Thibault is the winningest coach in league history with 357 victories.
