Illinois coach Brad Underwood to receive a 1-year extension through the 2026-27 season

The contract, which needs to be approved at a university board of trustees meeting Thursday, is worth $25.6 million for the next six seasons, according to Bret Beherns of WCIU-TV in Champaign. Illinois didn’t announce terms of the deal but said in a release Thursday that the first four years ($16.7 million, according to Beherns) are fully guaranteed, moving Underwood’s total annual compensation into the top 10 nationally.
