UCF coach Johnny Dawkins gets 1-year contract extension

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) UCF has extended the contract of basketball coach Johnny Dawkins after a successful first season.

The school announced Thursday that Dawkins' current six-year contract has been extended by a year through 2023. The extension will add $1.5 million onto his current deal.

Last year, Dawkins guided the Knights to a 24-12 record and an appearance in the NIT Final Four. UCF doubled its win total from the previous year, the sixth biggest turnaround in NCAA Division I basketball last season.
