Toledo men's basketball coach Tod Kowalczyk agreed to terms on a contract that extends through the 2027-28 season, the university announced Friday.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Kowalczyk, 57, has coached the Rockets for the last 14 seasons. He has guided the school to four consecutive Mid-American Conference championships and seven in the last 11 campaigns.

"Tod and his coaching staff have developed and maintained a culture at Toledo that has resulted in strong academic performances and four consecutive regular-season MAC titles," Toledo vice president and director of athletics Bryan B. Blair said. "Even more impressive, they have done it with young men who represent all that is great about the University of Toledo. We are fortunate to have Tod leading our program for many years to come, and he and I are both committed to elevating our men's basketball program to even greater heights moving forward."

Kowalczyk led the Rockets to a 20-12 record last season. He has posted a 278-181 mark with Toledo after notching a 136-112 record in eight seasons with Wisconsin-Green Bay (2002-10).

"I am extremely grateful to outgoing president (Gregory) Postel, interim president Matt Schroeder and Bryan Blair for their confidence in our program," Kowalczyk said. "We have earned this contract extension due to the hard work of our outstanding assistant coaches and talented student-athletes, both on the court and in the classroom. ... We will strive to continue to be one of the top mid-major programs in the country and continue to bring more championships to Toledo."
