RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State's trustees have approved a new contract for baseball coach Elliott Avent.

Avent has helped the Wolfpack host six NCAA regional rounds and reach the College World Series in 2013. He is the winningest coach in program history as he enters his 23rd season with the Wolfpack.

The board also approved a two-year extension for women's soccer coach Tim Santoro running through 2022.
