Men's College Basketball, Chattanooga Mocs

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Chattanooga men's basketball coach Matt McCall has received a two-year contract extension after leading the Mocs to an NCAA tournament appearance in his debut season.

The school announced the extension Thursday. McCall's contract now runs through the 2021-22 season.

Chattanooga went 29-6 last season to set a school record for victories. The Mocs captured their first Southern Conference regular-season title since 1994 and won the league's postseason tournament to earn their first NCAA bid since 2009.

Indiana beat Chattanooga 99-74 in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Athletic director David Blackburn said in a statement, "We had great confidence in who we hired a year ago, and that never wavered. This is in recognition of him and his staff's great work in equipping our student-athletes for success."
