PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) -Rutgers has given basketball coach Fred Hill a two-year contract extension, but he will not receive a salary increase under the deal.
Hill's contract, which was announced Thursday, will run through 2012-13.
Hill, 48, became the 16th head coach in school history when he succeeded Gary Waters in March 2006. He received a five-year contract worth $500,000 per year counting base salary and other considerations.
Before that, Hill had been an assistant coach for 24 years, including stops at fellow Big East members Villanova and Seton Hall. He had joined the Scarlet Knights' program in April 2005 when Waters named him associate head coach.
While Hill's teams have struggled on the court, he recently signed one of the most heralded recruiting classes in school history.
It includes two New Jersey prep stars who were among the most recruited players in the country: Mike Rosario, who recently led St. Anthony to an undefeated season and its 10th Tournament of Champions title, and Gregory Echenique, a Venezuelan native who starred at St. Benedict's Prep in Newark.
His father, Fred Hill Sr., has been the baseball coach at Rutgers for 25 years.
