Whalen, 35, has played for the Lynx for the past eight seasons.

She issued a statement today as well.

Whalen will replace Marlene Stollings, who left to become head coach at Texas Tech.

Whalen was a four-time all-state selection at Hutchinson High School, the first three-time All-American in U of M women's basketball history, and led the Gophers to their only Final Four in program history in 2004. "I can't tell you how excited I am to have the opportunity to make more", said Whalen said in a press release.

She was a four-time All-Minnesota Conference pick, and led her team to three consecutive conference basketball championships. Whalen also ran the court in professional leagues in Russia, Turkey, and the Czech Republic in 10 of her previous 14 seasons as a pro. "I want to commend Mark Coyle and his staff for his swift movement in landing one of the all-time great Gophers".

A clue, perhaps, of Minnesota's immediate interest in Whalen could be found in the official job requirements, listed at the top of the job posting for Gophers women's basketball coach.
