The Miami Hurricanes extended head coach Mark Richt's contract through the 2023 season, the school announced Thursday.
Financial terms were not disclosed for Richt, who signed a six-year deal in December 2015 that was reportedly worth more than $4 million annually after returning to Miami following his dismissal from Georgia.
"Mark has done a phenomenal job of building this program -- and generating enthusiasm for this program -- since the day he arrived back on campus," Miami athletic director Blake James said in a statement. "We look forward to continued success under his watch, both on and off the field, for many years to come."
Richt posted a 9-4 mark in his first season at his alma mater before upping the ante the following year, going 10-3 in 2017. The latter record marked the program's first season with double-digit victories since 2003.
The 58-year-old Richt also guided the Hurricanes to their first ACC Championship Game appearance last season.
"We're excited about where this program is headed," Richt said in a statement. "Miami is not only my alma mater, it is home to me and my family. It's a blessing to live and work in paradise."
Richt, who posted a 145-51 mark at Georgia, began his coaching career as an assistant under Bobby Bowden at Florida State in 1989. He ascended to offensive coordinator before leaving for Georgia.
