Barnes receives contract extension at Tennessee

The University of Tennessee has announced a contract extension for head men’s basketball coach Rick Barnes.

Barnes has led the Volunteers to appearances in each of the last three NCAA Tournaments, while restoring Tennessee’s status among the nation’s top collegiate basketball programs. Tennessee’s recruiting under Barnes has risen to unprecedented heights, as he has signed five five-star prospects in the last three years, and Tennessee’s 2021 signing class was rated as the third-best in the country.

Barnes’ contract was extended by two years and now runs through the 2025-26 season.
