FAIRFAX, Va. -- George Mason coach Jim Larranaga has signed a contract extension through the 2015-16 season.

Larranaga's new deal was announced Wednesday by the school.

He led George Mason to a surprising Final Four berth in the 2006 NCAA tournament.

Larranaga is the Patriots' leader in men's basketball coaching victories with a 246-157 record the past 13 seasons.

George Mason has had 12 consecutive winning seasons.
