After leading Loyola to its first NCAA tournament appearance since 1994, head coach Jimmy Patsos has agreed to a multi-year contract extension to remain with the Greyhounds.

Multiple reports indicate it is a five-year extension, but terms have not been disclosed.

The Greyhounds finished a 24-9 season with a 78-59 loss to eventual Final Four participant Ohio State. Loyola qualified for the NCAA tournament as a No. 15 seed by winning the MAAC tournament, completing the turnaround of a program that finished 1-27 the year before Patsos’ arrival in 2004.
