STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -Penn State gave basketball coach Ed DeChellis a three-year contract extension, rewarding him after the Nittany Lions won the NIT title last season.
DeChellis is entering his seventh season in Happy Valley. The new deal announced Thursday keeps DeChellis under contract at his alma mater through the 2013-14 season.
DeChellis led the Nittany Lions to a school-record 27 wins last season, ending with the program's first national postseason tournament title.
Penn State also set a school record with 17 home wins.
University policy is not to disclose terms of agreements. Records released by the school this spring showed DeChellis made more than $642,000 in base salary plus bonuses last year.
