SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Utah has rewarded basketball coach Jim Boylen with a raise and new contract after just two years on the job.
Utah announced Tuesday that Boylen has signed a five-year deal that will pay him $850,000 annually with potential for $1 million with incentives.
Boylen had three years remaining on his original contract, which paid him $575,000 a year.
Boylen has gone 42-25 in two seasons at Utah. The Utes tied for the Mountain West Conference regular season championship and won the league tournament this spring, reaching the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2005.
