SPRINGFIELD, Mo–The Missouri State board of curators officially extended Women’s basketball coach Kellie Harper’s contract Thursday. In our Bear Nation Report, the move will keep Harper on the Lady Bears sideline through at least March of 2022.
Kellie Harper just completed her fifth season as the Lady Bears coach, in that time she’s led Missouri State to post season competition in four straight seasons.
Last year’s squad was 21-12 and advanced to the second round of the WNIT. Harper’s base salary remains at $246,000. But if she remains the coach in Mid-April of next year, Harper will get a $100,000 bonus.
In a news release Harper says Missouri State is full of wonderful people and a great place to work and continue our vision for the Lady Bears basketball program.
