LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska coach Doc Sadler heads to the Big Ten with a two-year contract extension through the 2015-16 season.

The 50-year-old Sadler is 89-70 in five seasons with the Cornhuskers, including 30-50 in Big 12 games. His teams have never made the NCAA tournament.

The Huskers are 19-12 entering Wednesday night's first-round NIT game at Wichita State.

Athletic director Tom Osborne said Tuesday that he's pleased with the job Sadler has done. Terms were not disclosed. Sadler is getting $800,000 this year.

A new practice facility opens next year, and the team moves into a new downtown arena in 2013.
