Coach Kelvin Sampson has reached an agreement on a long-term contract extension at Houston, the school announced Thursday.
The deal runs through the 2024-25 season. Financial terms were not made public, but school officials previously said they had offered the 63-year-old coach a six-year, $18 million extension.
That deal would make Sampson one of the top 25 highest-paid coaches in the nation.
Sampson guided the Cougars (33-4) to the American Athletic Conference regular-season title and their first Sweet 16 appearance since 1984.
Sampson, who has been at Houston since 2014, reached a restructured deal in 2016 that bumped his annual salary to $1.4 million.
He has a 116-52 record with the Cougars and is 541-279 for his career, which includes previous stints at Washington State (1987-94), Oklahoma (1994-2006) and Indiana (2006-08).
He had been among the list of candidates for the coaching opening at Arkansas.
