Butler Extends Brad Stevens Through ’21-22

by April 09, 2010

You read it right. Stevens, who coached Butler to its first Final Four (or Elite Eight, for that matter), will be locked-up in Indy for 12 more seasons: “Stevens, 33, who took Butler on a surprising run to the NCAA championship game, was awarded a new 12-year contract by the university Thursday. Terms of the contract, which extends through the 2021-22 seasons, were not divulged. It is widely speculated that Stevens’ total package is at least $1 million annually. The Board of Trustees was discussing that amount, perhaps even before Butler reached the Final Four. Stevens’ base salary two years ago was $395,000, and the total package has been estimated at $750,000.”
