Minnesota did sign 3 or 4 incoming freshman under the previous coach, so at least the Gopher bench will not be lacking in numbers.
    Lindsay Whalen did get a 5 year contract, according to the Pioneer Press.
    Interestingly she starts at 250,000 while still playing for the Lynx this season, then goes up roughly 36,000 each following season, ending at 547,000, to average 400,000. Previous Coach Stallings made approx 500,000/ year.

    It’s quite a pay boost from the WNBA (not counting endorsements).

    Lindsay Whalen hiring Kelly Roysland as an assistant. Roysland, originally from Fosston MN, played for the Gophers and is currently the Head Coach at Macalester. Also was an assistant at NDSU for 2 seasons, 08-09. Roysland was a freshman when Whalen was a senior at Minnesota.
