The 60-year-old coach will make $2.45 million in annual compensation under the new deal. The three-year extension replaced his previous contract and he is set through the 2018-19 season. He says ``at least'' - suggesting he might coach longer.

Beilein says there was no sense of urgency to get a deal done, but added it felt good knowing he could make incoming high school juniors a promise he'd be there if they signed with Michigan.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Michigan is 25/1 to win the 2013-14 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship. Kentucky, meanwhile, is a 7/2 favorite to win next year's basketball title and Kansas is 13/2. Louisville is also 10/1, whiel Duke, Michigan State and North Carolina are all 12/1, respectively.
