Tallahassee Florida. – No. 11 Florida State has extended coach Leonard Hamilton’s contract until the 2024-25 season.
The school announced the extension Monday, with the deal set to keep Hamilton on the sidelines of FSU until he turns 76. You’ll pay about $ 562,500 for the remainder of the season and then about $ 2.3 million for each of the next four seasons.
These numbers are separate from several performance incentives such as $ 150,000 to win a regular Atlantic Coast Conference season or championship, $ 275,000 to reach the fourth Final and $ 500.00 to win a national championship.
Hamilton, 72, is the most winning coach in program history in his 19-year career with FSU and three times ACC coach of the year. This included last season, when the Seminoles won the regular season league title for the first time and was declared champions after the league canceled the remaining rounds amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
FSU has also competed in seven of the past 11 NCAA Championships, including reaching a regional final in 2018 and Sweet 16 a year later.
Florida, which also won the ACC Championship in 2012, tops the league once again entering the final week of the regular season. The Seminoles host Boston College on Wednesday.
