SEATTLE (AP) Washington coach Chris Petersen has signed a two-year contract extension keeping him tied to the Huskies through the 2020 season, the school announced on Thursday.
Petersen originally signed a five-year contract in December 2013. Petersen will be paid $4 million per season in 2019 and 2020, the same as he is scheduled to make in 2018, the final year of his original contract.
"Coach Petersen has demonstrated tremendous integrity and is building a program that Husky fans can be proud of, both on and off the field," Washington athletic director Scott Woodward said in a statement. "This extension is well-deserved and we hope Coach Petersen is a Husky for a long time to come."
