DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa coach Fran McCaffery has signed a
new seven-year deal to remain with the Hawkeyes.

Iowa athletic director Gary Barta said Tuesday that McCaffery
will be paid at least $1.66 million a year with a base salary of
$1.3 million starting next season.

McCaffery could make up to $1.86 million per season if the
Hawkeyes reach the NCAA tournament.

McCaffery left Siena to join the Hawkeyes before the 2010
season. His original contract was for six years and started at
roughly $1.1 million per year.

Iowa won 18 games and reached the NIT in 2011-12. The Hawkeyes
return three starters next season and bring in a freshman class
featuring prized recruits Adam Woodbury and Mike Gesell.
