Alabama basketball coach Nate Oats signed a new contract with the program, Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne announced Friday. Oats’ contract will go before the Board of Trustees for approval next week.

The long-term extension will make him one of the five highest-paid coaches in the country, according to ESPN.

“We are excited about the success of our men’s basketball program and Nate’s continued commitment to the university,” Byrne said in a statement posted on X, formerly known as Twitter. “We look forward to him leading our men’s basketball program for many years to come.”

Oats is 113-52 in five seasons as Alabama’s coach, guiding the Crimson Tide to three NCAA Tournament appearances. They fell to San Diego State in the Sweet Sixteen last year.

Alabama is 21-10 this season (13-15 in the SEC) and plays Florida in the SEC Tournament quarterfinals Friday.
