INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Fever coach Lin Dunn will retire from coaching after the 2014 season.

Team officials said Tuesday that she will remain with the Fever as a senior basketball adviser in 2015.

Dunn is entering her seventh season as the Fever's coach. She's led the Fever to the playoffs six times, the Eastern Conference finals four times, the WNBA Finals twice and won the WNBA championship in 2012.

Dunn finished her career at three college programs -- Austin Peay, Miami and Purdue -- as the winningest coach in school history. She led the Boilermakers to the Final Four in 1994 and also recruited Pat Summitt to Tennessee-Martin.

In 37 seasons, Dunn is 664-453. In June, she'll be inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame.
