Geno Auriemma has signed a five-year contract extension to remain as coach of the 11-time national champion UConn Huskies, the school announced Tuesday.

The 2024-25 campaign will be the 40th season at the helm in Storrs for Auriemma, who turned 70 in March.

“I still find it hard to believe that I’ve been at UConn for over half my life,” Auriemma said in a statement. “I feel like there’s so much more that can be done, and will be done, and I’m excited to be the one to do it with my staff and my team. I’m probably as excited about these next few years as I’ve ever been over the last 40.”

The contract extension runs through April 2029 and is valued at $18.7 million, the school said. It includes opportunities for additional compensation via performance-based incentives. Auriemma’s base salary will be $400,000 per year, and he will earn additional compensation for speaking, consulting and media obligations, starting at $2.94 million for the 2024-25 season and increasing by $200,000 each year thereafter.
