Stevens gets 12-year extension

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Brad Stevens is content to keep coaching the Butler way.

The 33-year-old coach, who came within a buzzer-beating shot of winning the NCAA men's basketball championship, signed a 12-year deal Thursday that extends through the 2021-22 season.

Team spokesman Jim McGrath declined to say how much the deal was worth, though Stevens had a total compensation package of $750,000 last season. Athletic director Barry Collier acknowledged Tuesday that Stevens was in line for a pay raise.

The Bulldogs got the man they wanted to stay.

The move should end, at least temporarily, speculation that Stevens would jump to a BCS-conference school.
