"Hatchell is in her 26th season at Carolina. A three-time national coach of the year, she has led the Tar Heels to the 1994 national championship, three Final Fours and eight ACC titles. She has won 859 games, 587 at Carolina, and is one of only four women's basketball coaches with at least 800 wins."
Men's basketball coach Roy Williams also received a contract extension through 2018. Perhaps surprisingly, Hatchell's base salary of $360,000 will exceed Williams' by $35,000.
