Marquette announced Tuesday afternoon that it has extended head coach Steve Wojciechowski’s contract for two more years through the end of the 2021-’22 season.

Wojciechowski, 39, is in his second year at the school after signing a six-year deal on April 1, 2014. The Golden Eagles went 13-19 last season with a depleted roster, but the team has turned in an impressive 10-2 start to the current campaign.

“We are thrilled with the direction the program is heading under Steve’s leadership,” said Vice President and Director of Athletics Bill Scholl. “This extension not only illustrates our commitment to what Steve and his staff are building at Marquette, but also his commitment to the University.”

University president Michael Lovell took to Twitter to congratulate Wojciechowski:

Despite a down year in 2013-’14, Wojciechowski kept Marquette in the national spotlight by signing a recruiting class ranked in the top 10 nationally, highlighted by NBA prospect Henry Ellenson. Wojciechowski also made headlines in late November 2015 when he stripped the players of their Marquette practice gear and switched to only black and white attire because the team was underperforming. Since that time, the team is on a nine-game winning streak heading into BIG EAST play.

“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.”
