UNC Greensboro has extended men's basketball coach Wes Miller's contract through the 2028-29 season after he led the Spartans to their first NCAA Tournament since 2001.

Athletic director Kim Record on Wednesday announced the seven-year extension that increases his base salary to more than $300,000 and increases his retention bonus and other performance-based incentives.

Record calls the extension "an investment in the future of our men's basketball program and a statement that as we raise our performance, we have also raised our expectations."

Under the 35-year-old Miller's leadership, UNC Greensboro won a school-record 27 games, claimed consecutive Southern Conference regular season titles, won the league tournament and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Gonzaga beat the Spartans 68-64 in the first round.
