West Virginia University and men’s basketball head coach Bob Huggins have agreed on a contract extension on Thursday, according to a report by Mike Casazza of 247Sports.

Huggins’ extension will reportedly last until he decides to retire. The deal is for multiple guaranteed years.

The extension that Huggins signed in November of 2017 was up for another negotiation by July 1, 2022. He is set to make $4.15 million in the 2021-22 season.

Huggins will now prepare to coach his 15th season for West Virginia. The future hall of fame coach is in rare company coaching multiple schools to a final four appearance. Huggins did it with Cincinnati in 1992 and West Virginia in 2010.

In March, Huggins became the sixth Division I men’s basketball coach to eclipse 900 wins when the Mountaineers defeated Morehead State in their first round matchup of March Madness.
