Purdue agrees to 3-year extension with coach Matt Painter
Matt Painter’s tenure in West Lafayette, Ind., isn’t coming to an end anytime soon.
Painter agreed to a three-year extension with Purdue on Sunday that will last through the 2021-22 season. According to the Lafayette Journal & Courier’s Nathan Baird, the deal won’t be finalized until later in the summer.
Financial details of the extension have not been released, but Painter is set to make $2.45 million in 2016.
Painter is 278-134 with eight NCAA tournament appearances during his 11-year tenure with the Boilermakers. Purdue has made two Sweet 16 appearances under Painter. The Boilermakers won the 2009 Big Ten Tournament and took a share of the regular season crown in 2010.
Last season, the Boilermakers went 26-9, but were upset by No. 12 seed Arkansas-Little Rock in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
