USF has awarded a three-year contract extension to women's soccer coach Denise Schilte-Brown, who led the program to its first American Athletic Conference title this past season.
The extension keeps Schilte-Brown, who turns 44 on Valentine's Day, under contract at USF through 2022.
A Nova Scotia native whose Canadian accent remains distinct, Schilte-Brown has compiled a 114-70-35 record in 11 seasons at USF. Only the second coach in program history, she has led the Bulls to four NCAA tournaments, including three in the last four seasons.
"Denise has done a tremendous job building USF women's soccer into a nationally ranked and highly competitive program that continues to attract high-level student-athletes that excel both on the field and in the classroom," Bulls athletic director Mark Harlan said.
This past fall, 22 of Schilte-Brown's players earned USF Athletics Academic Honor Roll recognition, and the team posted a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 89 percent or better for the 10th year in a row.
She also has continued localizing a solid portion of her roster. Six members of the 2017 team played at a bay area high school.
