The Wisconsin Badgers and head coach Greg Gard agreed to terms on a contract extension Friday that will run through the 2021-2022 season, according to CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein and 247Sports' Evan Flood.
Gard, who took over for Bo Ryan midway through the 2015-16 season, has gone 42-18 as head coach of the Badgers. This past season, Wisconsin went 27-10 and made a run to the East Regional semifinals before they were shocked by the Florida Gators at the buzzer.

Although the Badgers entered the NCAA tournament having lost six of their last 10 games, they made a statement in the round of 32 when they shocked the No. 1-seeded Villanova Wildcats 65-62 to clinch a spot in the Sweet 16.
It marked the second year in a row that the Badgers were able to qualify for a regional semifinal under Gard's leadership. In 2016, Wisconsin defeated No. 10-seeded Pittsburgh and No. 2 Xavier before falling to the sixth-seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish with a trip to the Elite Eight on the line.
Looking ahead to the 2017-18 season, Gard will have to reshape his depth chart with Vitto Brown, Nigel Hayes, Bronson Koenig and Zak Showalter all set to graduate.
