Katie Meier - Head Coach
Katie Meier completed her 13th season as the head coach of the Hurricanes’ women’s basketball program in 2017-18. A well-known and respected figure in women’s basketball, Meier has worked tirelessly to put her mark on Miami’s program and to build a winning tradition.
In 2017-18, Meier guided her team to a ninth consecutive postseason, a 7th trip to the NCAA Tournament in the last eight years, and a eight 20-plus win season in the last nine years, all extending program records. The Hurricanes finished with a 21-11 record to place 6th in the ACC this past season.
In January 2014, Meier was named a co-recipient of the 2013 USA Basketball National Coach of the Year award after leading the USA U19 team to a gold medal and perfect 9-0 record at the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championship.
All of her hard work was rewarded after the 2010-11 season when she was named the Associated Press National Coach of the Year - sharing the award with Connecticut’s Geno Auriemma and Stanford’s Tara VanDerveer.
That season, Meier led the Hurricanes into the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2004 and their win over Gardner-Webb in the first round was the first tournament win for Miami since 1993. The Canes entered the 2010-11 season with high internal expectations, but were picked eighth in the Preseason ACC Poll after a season in which they were the No. 12 seed in the ACC Tournament.
However, the Hurricanes exceeded all of the outside expectations and, at one point, won 17 straight games. They were a perfect 20-0 inside the BankUnited Center and finished 12-2 in ACC play - earning their first regular season conference title since joining the league in 2004. As a reward, Meier was named the ACC Coach of the Year and later would be selected as the WBCA/RUSSELL ATHLETIC Region 2 Coach of the Year, as voted on by her peers.
Meier continued that success into the 2011-12 season, a year in which the Canes accomplished many firsts for the program.
Miami defeated Maryland - the eventual ACC Tournament champ - twice during the regular season, the first when the Terrapins were ranked fifth in the nation. It was the first time in program history that the Hurricanes had defeated a top-five team. Later in the year, UM ascended to its highest ranking ever, also at No. 5.
The Hurricanes have proved to be formidable on the court in the Watsco Center, as the 2011-12 season saw Miami go undefeated at home for the second consecutive season. Their 16-0 mark on the year pushed the Canes record home win streak to 40 straight games. Only Stanford ended the season with a longer active streak.
For her dedication to the University of Miami and the athletic department, Meier was signed to a two-year contract extension, securing the Wheaton, Ill., native through the 2017-18 season. Prior to the 2014-15 season, Meier received another extension, through the 2020-21 campaign, and donated $75,000 back to the school to go towards women’s athletics as well as challenged to community to contribute too.
Five people who have been assistants for Meier during her head coaching career have gone on to earn Division I head coaching positions: Lynn Bria (Stetson), Amanda Butler (Clemson), Darrick Gibbs (North Florida), Carolyn Kieger (Marquette) and Stephanie McCormick (Western Carolina). Additionally, 20 of Meier's players at Miami have signed professional contracts after their college careers.
Through the 2017-18 season, Meier has a career record of 328-208, including a 252-163 mark at Miami.
