After leading Virginia to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2007, Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett recently signed a five-year extension that will keep him in Charlottesville through the 2019 season.

The terms of the contract, which was obtained by the Washington Post through an open-records request, are largely the same from when Bennett inked a five-year contract upon arriving at U.Va. from Washington State in 2009.

Bennett will continue to make $1.7 million a year.

If he is still the Cavaliers coach following the 2014 season, Bennett is also due a $500, 000 bonus.

Last season, Bennett led the Cavaliers to a 22-10 record despite a wave of injuries and transfers that left U.Va. with just seven scholarship players by the end of the season.

The Cavaliers earned a No. 9 seed in the NCAA tournament before losing to Florida in the round of 64.
