(Alex Brandon, Baltimore Free Press)Montgomery, the first woman to coach an NCAA Division I program, was hired in December and the Terrapics won the program’s first title, an NCAA tournament title and the CollegeInsider.com Division I Women’s Basketball Coach of the Year award.
She won two Big Ten titles in her five seasons with the Terps, including the 2013 and 2014 championships.
Montgomery also won a Big Ten title in 2014 and was a three-time Academic All-American.
She was the only women’s assistant to lead the Terriers to three consecutive NCAA tournament appearances, including a Sweet 16 appearance in 2016.
She will coach her first Maryland squad since she was fired in April 2018.
Montgomery has been in the coaching world for more than two decades, having been an assistant coach with three different college programs: Georgetown, Georgetown University and the University of Maryland.
She has been the head coach of the Maryland women for the past six seasons.
The Terrapines are ranked No. 3 in the Associated Press Top 25.
Maryland has won at least eight conference championships and seven NCAA tournaments in the last 15 years.
It is one of just three women’s teams in the country to win five of its last six conference championships.
