The Oregon Ducks and basketball Head Coach Dana Altman have agreed to a contract extension through the 2026-27 basketball season. Altman has been the Head Coach for the Oregon Ducks since the 2010-11 basketball season. His time with the Ducks should be described as a successful one with plenty of program success and some NBA talent as well. His list of personal and team achievements are fairly long while with the Ducks. This locks up a great coach and provides long-term program stability for the Ducks.

This contract will keep Dana Altman with the program until he turns 69. Altman will likely retire with the Oregon Duck’s program now that he’s signed this extension. While with the Ducks he has amassed a 280-110 record. He has also won three PAC-12 Coach of the Year awards while with the Ducks. Altman has also won the PAC-12 regular season title four times and the PAC-12 Tournament Championship three times. The Ducks have made the NCAA Tournament seven times with five sweet sixteen appearances, two elite eight appearances, and one final four appearance under the Head Coach.
Dana Altman has not lost an NCAA Tournament first-round game while with the Ducks. This is a smart program move for the Ducks to lock up Altman for what could be the rest of his career. He will continue to bring a winning culture to Oregon and keep them near or at the top of the PAC-12. Altman will continue to push Oregon to new heights with the ultimate goal of trying to win an NCAA Championship. He could easily go down as one of the best Head Coaches in PAC-12 history.
