The University of Minnesota and Gophers men's hockey head coach Bob Motzko have agreed to a contract extension.

According to a release Thursday, the three-year contract extension means Motzko will stay with the team through the 2025-26 season.

The agreement still needs the approval of the Board of Regents.

"It’s an honor to lead this program and to follow in the footsteps of some truly legendary coaches here at the University of Minnesota over the last 100 years," Motzko said in a statement. "As a coaching staff, this is always an exciting time of year. You feel the anticipation in the locker room, you feel it on campus, and you feel it throughout the state. This is a special place to coach because of that passion, and I’m very thankful for everyone at the University of Minnesota for continuing to believe in what we are doing here."
