PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Former Penn State women's basketball coach Coquese Washington will succeed Hall of Famer C. Vivian Stringer as coach at Rutgers, the school announced Monday.

Washington, who spent the past two seasons as an assistant at Notre Dame, agreed to a six-year contract, the school said. It guarantees total compensation of $4.625 million with additional performance incentives.

Stringer retired late last month at age 74, capping a career in which she won more than 1,000 games in 50 seasons - the last 25 at Rutgers - and went to the Final Four four times with three different teams: Cheyney State, Iowa and Rutgers. She did not coach this past season because of concerns over COVID-19.
