Niko Medved led Colorado State University to an eight-win improvement in his second season.

That progress led the Rams to extend Medved through the 2025-26 season. Medved was originally signed to a five-year contract when he was hired on March 23, 2018.

Athletic director Joe Parker announced the extension on Thursday (Nov. 19) in a press release.

"We are thrilled to be able to re-affirm our commitment to Niko Medved and the program he is building here at Colorado State," Parker said in the press release. "Since day one, Coach Medved has brought an unrivaled enthusiasm to our campus and community, he has put our student-athletes first, and he has been an exemplary representative of Colorado State University and Colorado State Athletics. I am looking forward to watching Coach Medved's continued development of our student-athletes and of Colorado State men's basketball."

Medved has gone 32-32 in his two season as Rams head coach. He previously served as a CSU assistant from 2007-13.

Medved also previously served as head coach for Furman and Drake.

"I want to thank President McConnell, Joe Parker, and everyone in the CSU athletics department," Medved said in the press release. "We are so appreciative of the commitment that Colorado State has made to our program. It's no secret how much all of us love living in Fort Collins, working at Colorado State and working with such great people and student-athletes every day. We are really excited about this season and feel great about the program we are building at Colorado State."
