RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina State has approved a two-year contract extension for men's basketball coach Kevin Keatts.
The deal announced Friday by the school keeps Keatts under contract through the 2025-26 season. The financial terms remain the same, meaning Keatts will continue to make $2.7 million per year.
The 47-year-old Keatts is 45-24 in two seasons at North Carolina State and led the Wolfpack to the NCAA Tournament in 2018. They missed the tournament last year after finishing 24-12 and playing in the NIT.
The school awarded him a new contract last November that increased his annual pay by $400,000.
New athletic director Boo Corrigan calls Keatts ''a tremendous leader for N.C. State,'' credits him for bringing consistency to the program and says he ''does it the right way.''
