Buzz Williams has reached an agreement on a new and extended contract to remain at Marquette, the school announced on Wednesday.

“I was given an opportunity beyond my wildest dreams 1086 days ago and my entire family is extremely humbled and grateful by the opportunity to continue this journey,” Williams said. “Too much attention is given to my position, but I assure you, it’s the collective ownership of all of those who impact our program daily, who have developed the culture we currently have. I am thankful to all of those who work so diligently to make our program the success it is today."

Details of the contract were not disclosed, but a source told that Williams' new deal is worth more than $2 million annually. Williams has led Marquette to three straight NCAA tournament appearances since replacing Tom Crean, most recently the Sweet 16 thanks to wins over Xavier and Syracuse. His name had been connected to the opening at Oklahoma primarily because he's from Texas.
