According to a report from Joe Giglio of the News and Observer, NC State and Kevin Keatts have agreed to a new contract extension. The extension is good for two more years; this means Keatts will be signed through the 2025-26 season.
As Giglio notes, the financial terms of the deal are the same as the reworked deal ($2.7 million annually) from December 2018.

This is one of the first major moves of new athletics director Boo Corrigan. During his first two seasons at NC State, Keatts has gone 45-24; that includes a 21-12 campaign in the 2017-18 season, which resulted in an NCAA Tournament invitation. Keatts has a conference record of 20-16, too.
Under Keatts, NC State has ranked inside the top 35 nationally in offensive efficiency in both seasons.
