Gregg Marshall To Sign 7-Year Deal With Wichita State

by April 02, 2015

Gregg Marshall has been one of the hottest coaching commodities in college basketball this offseason, as he has attracted interest from multiple Power-5 schools with job openings. But Wichita State made sure its coach was taken off the market on Wednesday night, when it agreed to a new contract with Marshall. The new deal will span seven years and pay him more than $3 million a year, according to CBS Sports.

From CBS Sports:

Gregg Marshall has reached an agreement in principle to remain at Wichita State with a substantial raise, multiple sources told on Wednesday.


This development ends Alabama’s pursuit of Marshall.


Sources told that Marshall’s new deal is for seven years.


He’ll earn more than $3 million per year.


Alabama is the latest of many so-called Power-5 jobs Marshall has passed on — joining a list already featuring Missouri, Tennessee, N.C. State and California. The 52-year old has taken Wichita State to four straight NCAA Tournaments, earned a No. 1 seed, made the Sweet 16 twice and advanced to the 2013 Final Four. He’ll have a preseason Top 25 team again next season, provided Fred VanVleet and Ron Baker return for their senior years.
