Mayfield graduate signs contract extension with University of Akron

Mayfield graduate Jodi Kest has received security in a volatile industry.

Kest signed a five-year contract extension as University of Akron's head women's basketball coach. The deal runs through 2017-18.

Kest will enter her eighth season as Akron's coach in 2013-14. She led the Zips to a school-record 23 victories and a WNIT berth last season.

Kest is 98-119 at Akron. She has accumulated a 323-272 record in 21 seasons as a head coach, with other stops coming at Wilkes (Pa.), Gannon (Pa.) and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.

The Zips return four starters, including MAC Player of the Year Rachel Tecca, in 2013-14.
