San Diego State men’s basketball coach Brian Dutcher signed a one-year contract extension through the 2022-23 season, the school announced Wednesday.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, though the San Diego Union-Tribune reports Dutcher is guaranteed roughly $4 million over the five-year pact.
He made just over $755,000 last season and will receive a raise of $50,000 each year, raising the 2022-23 value to just over $1 million, according to the Union-Tribune.
“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to be able to coach at San Diego State for the foreseeable future,” Dutcher said in a statement.
In his first season at the helm of the team, Dutcher led the Aztecs (22-11) to their 11th Mountain West title and an NCAA Tournament berth, ending a two-year drought that had taken place under longtime head coach Steve Fisher.
Dutcher took over when Fisher retired in April 2017.
“In his first season, Coach Dutcher continued what has been a staple of the San Diego State men’s basketball program — continued improvement and playing its best basketball heading into the postseason,” athletic director John David Wicker stated. “I have been impressed with how he has put his own stamp on the program and I look forward to seeing Aztec basketball grow under his leadership.”
Jalen McDaniels, Devin Watson and Matt Mitchell return as starters for San Diego State.
