Athletic director Craig Littlepage made the announcement Tuesday. He says the contract carries through the 2020-21 season. It replaces an extension to Bennett's original contract that was scheduled to end following the 2018-19 season.
A release from the school states that the new deal increases Bennett's salary and supplemental compensation to $1.942 million.
Bennett was named the Atlantic Coast Conference coach of the year this season after leading the Cavaliers to a school record-tying 30 victories and the ACC regular season and tournament championships.
The Cavaliers also were a top seed in the NCAA tournament and made their first appearance in the Sweet 16 since 1995. Their season ended with a 61-59 loss to Michigan State.
