Wisconsin extends Ryan through 2019

  Bo Ryan's Wisconsin team reached the national semifinals this past season.

MADISON, Wis. -- A Wisconsin athletic board has approved a one-year extension for Bo Ryan that stretches his five-year deal with the Badgers through 2019.

Ryan guided Wisconsin to its first Final Four appearance since 2000, losing 74-73 to Kentucky in the semifinal. It was a banner year for a program that finished 30-8 and had a school-record 16-game winning streak to start the season.

Ryan has a compensation package of about $2.3 million a year, and his contract calls for a $100,000 raise each June. He earned a $60,000 bonus for reaching the Final Four.

The Wisconsin Athletic Board approved the extension Friday, along with one-year extensions for other coaches, including Mike Eaves of men's hockey and Mark Johnson of women's hockey.
