The UW Athletic Board met Friday afternoon and approved the recommendations of the UW Department of Athletics regarding contracts for
winter/spring sports head coaches.
There were some that thought Mike Eaves job security was at bit iffy after a slow start this past season. But a fantastic second half finish and trip to the NCAA Tournament wiped away any speculation about Eaves future in Madison. The UW Athletic Board extended his five-year contract through June 30, 2018. Women’s hockey coach Mark Johnson also had his 5-year deal extended through that same date.
Men’s basketball coach Bo Ryan and women’s coach Bobbie Kelsey had their 5-year deals extended through May 31st, 2018. Wrestling Coach Barry Davis had his three-year contract extended through May 31, 2016. Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Coach Whitney Hite’s one-year contract was renewed through June 14, 2014.
