Miami Hurricanes head basketball coach Jim Larranaga is sticking around for a while.

Athletic director Dan Radakovich announced Wednesday that Larranaga has received a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the Coral Gables school through the 2025-26 season.

"I am excited to have Jim continue to lead our men's basketball program," Radakovich said in a statement. "He is an outstanding ambassador on and off the court for Miami and for the game of college basketball. We look forward to many more seasons of success with Jim at the helm."

Larranaga has a 222-139 record in 11 seasons at Miami and a 692-473 overall record. He has more wins than any other coach in Miami basketball history.

The two-time Atlantic Coast Conference coach of the year has led the Hurricanes to a 22-9 record this season, including a 14-6 record in ACC play.

Miami won its first ACC championship in school history under Larranaga during the 2012-13 season.

"This extension is truly about all of us associated with the program and what we have accomplished together," Larranaga said in a statement. "I love working at Miami and this city has truly become home for me and my wife, Liz. I'm incredibly excited to continue coaching here at 'The U' and look forward to leading the program to more memorable moments in the future."

No. 4 seed Miami will face No. 13 seed Boston College at 2:30 p.m. Thursday in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament.
