Louisville coach Jeff Walz has agreed to a contract extension through the 2028-29 season.

The university announced the extension on Friday, but did not release any details of the contract.

In release from the school, Walz thanked athletic department and school officials for recognizing his program's success. The 15-year coach, 410-112 at the school with three women's Final Four appearances and four Atlantic Coast Conference regular season titles, said in a release that he was excited as when he arrived and praised his staff and players.

"It is the players who have made this a perennially elite women's basketball program," Walz added. "And it's the relationships developed with those players, both past and present, that is most important to me."
