The University of Alabama (UA) Crimson Tide have agreed on a $30 million contract extension to keep head basketball coach Nate Oats through the year 2029. The six-year deal includes incentives such as $300,000 for winning a final four game and $500,000 for winning the national championship.

“Coach Oats has done an outstanding job leading our men’s basketball program, and we want him to continue doing so for many years to come,” said UA athletic director Greg Byrne.

2019-2022

Nate Oats became the head coach for Alabama in 2019, coming off a highly successful four years at the University at Buffalo. He reached the NCAA tournament three of those four years as a result of winning the MAC conference.

In the first three seasons as head coach, he has a 61-36 record and reached the NCAA tournament twice. Oats recruited two five-star prospects in the 2022 class and set expectations high for this year.

2022-2023 Season thus far

Coming into this year, Nate Oats was prepared to coach the best roster he’s ever had. Freshman forward Brandon Miller and transfer junior guard Mark Sears have carried this team to a 9-0 conference record. They sit atop the SEC and have been ranked in the top 5 nationally for much of the year.

There’s been a major sigh of relief from the Alabama Crimson Tide faithful after this signing. If the success continues, Alabama might just be a basketball school after all.
