After leading Florida State to a 26-9 record last season, head basketball coach Leonard Hamilton has received a contract extension.

Per Joe Reedy of the Associated Press, Florida State announced Hamilton's extension will run through the 2019-20 season. 

Florida State's 26 wins last season were the second-most in program history. The Seminoles received a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament but were upset in the second round by Xavier. 

Hamilton took over as Florida State's head coach prior to the 2002-03 season. The 68-year-old has a 304-196 record with the program, collecting five NCAA tournament appearances and the 2012 ACC conference tournament title.
