Steve Rohlik has signed a contract extension to remain Ohio State’s head coach through the 2020-21 season.

Rohlik has been behind the Buckeyes’ bench since the start of the 2013-14 season and has compiled a 46-51-12 mark going into the current 2016-17 season, where OSU is 1-0-2 through three games.

“It’s certainly a nice feeling, but it has to do with a lot of good people around you and a lot of good players,” Rohlik told USCHO.com. “We sat down and talked probably the end of July. Obviously to be in a position to be at this great institution and have (athletic director) Gene Smith and (associate athletic director) Shaun Richard have faith in you and like the direction of where the program was going, I’m the fortunate one and obviously, it’s very humbling.”
