Fever extend Dunn contract to 2014, elevate White

The Indiana Fever have extended the contract of coach Lin Dunn by one year, through 2014, and have elevated assistant coach Stephanie White to associate head coach beginning next year.

The team announced the changes Tuesday.

Dunn led the Fever to their first Women's National Basketball Association championship last year, but the team has struggled to a 4-7 start this season. In five seasons under Dunn, Indiana has a 107-74 record and .591 winning percentage.

The 66-year-old Dunn began her 43-year coaching career in 1970.

White, an Indiana native whom Dunn recruited to play collegiately at Purdue, retired from the Fever following the 2004 season and is in her third year as a coach with the team after spending four years with the Chicago Sky.
