Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Xavier reached a new agreement with men's basketball coach Chris Mack on Monday, extending him through the 2019-20 season.

The 44-year-old Mack and Xavier alum has led the Musketeers to the NCAA Tournament in four of his first five seasons, including appearances in the Sweet 16 in 2010 and 2012.

"It's clear that our men's basketball program is pointed in the right direction," Xavier athletics director Greg Christopher said. "Xavier's three decades of sustained success is the result of intentional planning and efforts from many people here at Xavier. Maintaining that success starts with the right leadership and Chris is that person. Whether it's coaching, recruiting or how he runs and represents the program, Chris does a terrific job and is the perfect fit for Xavier."

Mack holds an overall mark of 111-57 and is fourth on the school's all-time wins list. The Musketeers were 21-13 this past season, but fell to NC State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

"We have lofty goals for our basketball program," Mack said. "Xavier is a special place and the support from the entire Xavier Community is overwhelming. Xavier and the City of Cincinnati are home to me. As both an alum and the head coach, I am excited about the challenges ahead. Between our returning players and the new recruiting class, the coming years at Xavier will be special. We're ready to get started right now."

XU's director of basketball operations from 1999-2001, Mack spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Wake Forest from 2001-04. He returned to Xavier in 2004 as an assistant coach under former head coach Sean Miller.
