MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin athletic board has approved a one-year extension for Bo Ryan that stretches his five-year deal with the Badgers through 2019.
Ryan guided Wisconsin to its first Final Four appearance since 2000, losing 74-73 to Kentucky in the semifinal. It was a banner year for a program that finished 30-8 and had a school record 16-game winning streak to start the season.
Ryan has a compensation package of about $2.3 million a year, and his contract calls for a $100,000 raise each June. He earned a $60,000 bonus for reaching the Final Four.
The Wisconsin Athletic Board approved the extension Friday, along with one-year extensions for other coaches, including Mike Eaves of men's hockey and Mark Johnson of women's hockey.
