Virginia Tech inks coach Brooks to 3-year extension after Final Four trip
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Virginia Tech women's basketball coach Kenny Brooks has signed a three-year contract extension, athletic director Whit Babcock announced Monday.
The extension will keep Brooks with the Hokies through March of 2029. It is valued at $6.4 million over six years and includes enhancements for support staff salaries, the assistant coach salary pool, postseason bonuses and operating budget.
The move comes after the Hokies' best season — a 31-5 record, the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. They reached the Final Four, losing to national champion LSU in the semifinals.
Over eight seasons with the Hokies, Brooks' record is 155-74, including 62-56 in ACC play. His teams have reached the NCAA Tournament three straight years.
“Coach Brooks has revitalized our women’s basketball program and enriched numerous lives through his impactful leadership. I join our fans in excitement as we look forward to the future success of Virginia Tech women’s basketball," Babcock said in a statement announcing the extension.
