ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — UCF has extended the contract of basketball coach Johnny Dawkins after a successful first season.
The school announced Thursday that Dawkins’ current six-year contract has been extended by a year through 2023.
Last year, Dawkins guided the Knights to a 24-12 record and an appearance in the NIT Final Four.
UCF doubled its win total from the previous year, the sixth biggest turnaround in NCAA Division I basketball last season.
His current contract pays him $1.1 million before incentives.
