ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan coach John Beilein has agreed to a contract extension through the 2022-23 season.

The school said Wednesday the five-year deal automatically extends an additional year and repeats each year until either Beilein or the school decides not to renew. The 65-year-old Beilein has been at Michigan for 11 seasons and took the Wolverines to the national championship game in 2013 and 2018. Michigan lost to Louisville the first time and lost to Villanova earlier this year.

"I am thrilled to ensure John's leadership of our basketball program today and into the future," athletic director Warde Manuel said in a statement. "I am very pleased with our shared dialogue throughout the process, and I am extremely happy that one of the game's great coaches is representing the University of Michigan."
