ORONO, MAINE (AP) - Maine has extended basketball coach Ted Woodward’s contract through the 2015 season.

The school announced the extension Thursday, saying Woodward was rewarded for the progress the team has made on the court in the past two seasons and for his high graduation rate.

Woodward, in his eighth season as the Black Bears’ head coach, has a 97-125 record, including a 5-4 mark this season. The program has shown progress the last two seasons, with top three finishes in America East play and marquee victories over Big Ten and Atlantic Coast Conference opponents. He has also graduated 20 of 21 seniors during his tenure.

Before coming to Maine as an assistant in 1996, Woodward was an assistant at Connecticut and Central Connecticut.
