Steve Forbes, Wake Forest agree on long-term extension

Steve Forbes was hired to replace Danny Manning in April 2020. Within the span of two years, Forbes has revitalized the Wake Forest basketball program. The Demon Deacons are 23-8 (13-7 ACC) on the season, with a fifth place finish in the conference.

Forbes initially signed a six-year deal with Wake Forest; however, following a fantastic regular season, Forbes has agreed to a long-term extension with the university. The second-year coach received the extension on the same day he was named ACC Coach of the Year.

The terms of the deal aren’t much. When he was hired, Forbes signed with Wake Forest through 2026. This, however, will move those goalposts further out.
