Nate Oats, UB agree to contract extension

  Oats and UB agreed to a contract extension prior to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in a year, and helps the Bulls retain their highest-profile coach.

  Oats is 92-42 in four seasons as head coach at UB, and he has led the Bulls to two NCAA Tournament berths and two MAC Tournament championships since he took over as head coach in 2016.

  The new contract terms, released Thursday by UB, increase Oats' salary and his bonuses.

  NCAA Tournament bonuses in Oats' previous contract ranged from $10,000 to $75,000 for each round the Bulls advanced to.
