WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW Director of Athletics Jimmy Bass has rewarded men’s basketball coach Kevin Keatts with a contract extension following a successful season on the hardwood.

Keatts, who is entering the second of a five-year deal with the men’s basketball team in 2015-16, will have an extra year added to his contract. He led the Seahawks to an 18-13 overall record last year, including a share of the Colonial Athletic Association regular season title and the program’s first post-season berth in eight seasons. It was one of the top turnaround seasons in the NCAA Division I ranks in 2013-14.

Keatts was selected as the CAA men’s basketball Coach of the Year and the NABC District 10 Coach of the Year in 2014-15.

The extension pushes Keatts’ contract through March 31, 2020.
