ATLANTA — Georgia coach Mark Fox has received a $400,000 raise and a one-year extension after taking the Bulldogs to the NCAA tournament this season.

Georgia's athletic board announced on Thursday that Fox will receive a raise from $1.3 million to $1.7 million and his contract has been extended through the 2016 season.

Georgia finished 21-12 under Fox this season and received its first NCAA tournament bid since 2008. Washington beat Georgia, 68-65, in the first round of the tournament.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity says Fox and his staff "have been exceptional in energizing our men's basketball program."
