HONOLULU -- Hawaii basketball coach Bob Nash has agreed to a one-year contract extension with an option for another season.

Hawaii athletic director Jim Donovan announced the deal Wednesday that would keep Nash through the 2011-12 season, if the second-year option is granted through performance clauses.

The standard for renewal is participating in a postseason tournament or winning 18 games during either the 2009-10 or 2010-11 seasons.

The Rainbow Warriors are coming off a disappointing 13-17 season. Nash, who replaced Riley Wallace, is 24-36 in his first two seasons.

Next season would have been the final of a three-year contract that pays him about $240,000 a year.
