Coach Kelvin Sampson signs extension to stay with Houston

HOUSTON (AP) Houston coach Kelvin Sampson has signed a contract extension through the 2024-25 season after helping the Cougars to their best season in 35 years.

The move comes after Sampson turned around a downtrodden program and led the Cougars to their first Sweet 16 since 1984. Houston lost to Kentucky 62-58 to end its season at 33-4, a school record for wins.

Terms were not released Thursday and the deal is subject to approval by school's regents.
