MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -West Virginia coach Neal Brown has received a two-year contract extension through the 2026 season.

Brown has coached the Mountaineers to an 11-11 record in his first two seasons, including a 6-4 mark in 2020.

He had four years remaining on his original contract signed in January 2019. Brown’s annual compensation, including base salary and supplemental compensation, will average $3.98 million over the length of the new six-year deal.

His previous contract averaged about $3.2 million.

Athletic director Shane Lyons says he’s pleased with the upward trajectory of the program and its culture under Brown.
