Fresh off of becoming the first coach to lead a No. 16-seed to a win over a No. 1-seed when his Retrievers knocked off the Virginia Cavaliers, Ryan Odom landed a contract extension that will nearly double his salary.

According to the Baltimore Sun, who obtained a copy of Odom’s contract, he will make $500,000 in total next season, up from the $225,000 he was scheduled to make on his original deal.

The contract was agreed to back in March. It runs through 2023 with a buyout of $225,000.

In two seasons at UMBC, Odom has a record of 46-24, including a school-record 25 wins last season.
