Ohio State coach Thad Matta has agreed to a revised contract that will give him a 10 percent increase to more than $3.2 million annually and includes academic bonuses and more stringent wording about NCAA violations.
With years he had already earned through job performance, the five-time Big Ten champion coach will be under contract through July 2019.
Matta's first eight Ohio State teams have each won at least 20 games and are 13-4 this season and ranked No. 14. He has a record of 234-69 with the Buckeyes after taking over a team that was on probation.
"One of the things I'm most proud of is what we've built here, from where we started," he said. "You look at what we've been able to accomplish, I'm a lot more proud of that than I am of a contract. I feel as blessed as I can be to be at Ohio State. I love this university. I'm extremely grateful in terms of what they have allowed me to do and how they've taken care of me."
