Louisville has extended the contract of men’s head basketball coach Rick Pitino for an additional four years.
Pitino had seven years remaining on his current deal. He has a record of 368-126 with 12 NCAA Tournament appearances in 14 seasons at Louisville, making him the third-winning coach in school history.
The 62-year-old New York native guided the Cardinals to the 2013 national championship, making Pitino the only coach to win a national title with two different schools. He led Kentucky to the 1996 championship.
Louisville was 27-9 this past season, falling just short of another Final Four berth with a loss to Michigan State in the NCAA Tournament East Regional final. The Cardinals have been to the Elite Eight five times in the last eight years.
In 30 seasons as a collegiate head coach with five different schools, Pitino has a record of 722-254. Seven of his teams have reached the Final Four — three each with Louisville and Kentucky, as well as Providence in 1987.
