RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State has given basketball coach Kevin Keatts a new contract through the 2023-24 season.

The school’s board of governors on Friday approved the six-year deal that will pay him $2.7 million per year — an increase of $400,000 from his previous salary.

Keatts originally signed a six-year contract after his hiring in March 2017, and when he led the Wolfpack to the NCAA Tournament last season, it triggered a one-year rollover clause.

Athletic director Debbie Yow says Keatts “has made a profound and immediate impact at N.C. State.”

The Wolfpack (8-1) face Penn State on Saturday in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
