Rutgers and men's basketball coach Steve Pikiell have agreed to a three-year contract extension, university athletic director Patrick Hobbs announced Wednesday.
Pikiell will be guaranteed $15.05 million over the next five seasons, plus performance bonuses, which runs through 2023-2024.
"Steve is doing a fantastic job and it's our intent to do everything we can to keep him at Rutgers for a very long time," Hobbs said in a statement. "There is incredible excitement around our program. We are going to compete with the very best because of Steve's leadership. Our program could not be in better hands."
Pikiell has guided Rutgers to 26-24 overall record, including 11-6 this season. The Scarlet Knights went 15-18 in 2016-17, which more than doubled the program's win total from the previous season.
Pikiell was the head coach for the Stony Brook men's basketball team before joining Rutgers. He led the Seawolves to six postseason appearances over his last seven years with the program.
