Arizona State and head coach Bobby Hurley have agreed to a contract extension through the 2025-26 season.

The deal still requires the approval of the Arizona Board of Regents, which is scheduled to meet in executive session on Wednesday morning.

The school did not announce financial terms.

"Coach Hurley has made our program relevant nationally with many significant wins and an exciting style, along with a firm commitment to the academic success of our student-athletes," athletic director Ray Anderson said in a news release. "He has made it clear to us that he wants to be here and we have done likewise with him. We share a strong confidence in the present and future state of Sun Devil Men's Basketball."

Under Hurley, the Sun Devils have won 20-plus games in four of the past six seasons, and they've made three NCAA Tournament appearances in Hurley's eight seasons in Tempe. Hurley, 51, has a 141-113 record with the Sun Devils, including 23-13 (11-9 Pac-12) this season.

The Sun Devils defeated Nevada 98-73 last week in the First Four of the NCAA Tournament, then dropped their first-round game, 72-70, to TCU, the sixth seed in the West Region.

Hurley was 42-20 in two seasons at Buffalo before his appointment at Arizona State.
