Colorado State coach Niko Medved agreed to an extension Sunday that will keep him on the Rams bench through the 2028-29 season.

Medved led the Rams to a 25-5 record and an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament in his fourth season in Fort Collins, Colo. The Rams drew a No. 6 seed in the South Region and will play No. 11 Michigan in the first round.

“Niko has done an amazing job crafting the culture of Colorado State men’s basketball,” CSU athletics director Joe Parker said in a statement. “His relentless pursuit of excellence aligns with our desire to be nationally recognized as a pre-eminent athletics program across multiple dimensions. We are grateful for Niko’s leadership as he continues to develop our student-athletes and the community around our team.”

The Rams are in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2013.

Medved is 77-45 at CSU. He went 17-17 in one season at Drake and 62-71 as the head coach of Furman (2013-17).
