KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee has extended coach Rick Barnes’ contract through the 2027-28 season, which should help ensure he finishes his career with the Volunteers.

Athletic director Danny White on Tuesday announced the extension, which adds a year onto Barnes’ contract with no change in his supplemental pay of $5.75 million for each of the final two seasons. White said it was a thrill to keep building the program that Barnes has developed.

“Our fans have responded to help create an electric atmosphere on game days, and I can’t wait to watch the Vols continue our quest for more championships under Rick’s leadership,” White said in a statement.

Barnes, who turned 69 in July, is going into his ninth season at Tennessee and 37th as a head coach. He is 779-406 in his career and currently 15th all-time for most Division I victories.
