INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Butler coach Brad Stevens has agreed to a contract extension with the Bulldogs through the 2015-16 season.
The new contract announced Thursday adds one year to the contract Stevens signed a year ago. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed.
The 32-year-old Stevens is one of the youngest coaches in Division I. He is 56-10 record in two seasons as Butler coach, winning the Horizon League regular-season championship and taking the Bulldogs to the NCAA tournament both years.
Butler was 26-6 last season, losing to LSU in the first round of the tourney.
Stevens played at nearby DePauw. He was a Butler assistant for six years under Thad Matta and Todd Lickliter and became coach after Lickliter left for Iowa in 2007.
