Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski has signed a contract extension through the 2021–2022 season, the university announced Tuesday.

Wojciechowski, a longtime Duke assistant, is in the midst of his second season as head coach. The Golden Eagles are 10–2 to start the 2015–16 campaign after going 13–19 last year, and brought in a highly-touted recruiting class this season led by Henry Ellenson.

“We are thrilled with the direction the program is heading under Steve’s leadership,” vice president and director of athletics Bill Scholl said in a statement. “This extension not only illustrates our commitment to what Steve and his staff are building at Marquette, but also his commitment to the University.”

Terms of the contract have not yet been disclosed. 

“I am extremely grateful for the support the University provides our program on a daily basis,” Wojciechowski said. “It’s a team effort, on and off the court, and the belief in what we are building is tremendous and will play a key role in keeping Marquette among the elite programs in the country.”

Marquette opens Big East play Wednesday against Seton Hall.
