With the young Golden Eagles off to a flying start at 10-2, Marquette wanted to lock up the services of their young and upcoming coach early. Wojciechowski’s initial contract ran through the 2019-2020 season.
“We are thrilled with the direction the program is heading under Steve’s leadership,” Vice President & Director of Athletics Bill Scholl said in a statement. “This extension not only illustrates our commitment to what Steve and his staff are building at Marquette, but also his commitment to the University.”
“I am extremely grateful for the support the University provides our program on a daily basis,” Wojciechowski added in a statement. “It’s a team effort, on and off the court, and the belief in what we are building is tremendous and will play a key role in keeping Marquette among the elite programs in the country.”
Wojciechowski, 39, is now 23-21 at the school through a year and a half. He will now get his club ready to begin Big East play. The Golden Eagles open by hosting Seton Hall on Wednesday.
