The new deal keeps him with the Zips through the 2022 season.

The University of Akron has extended the contract of men's soccer coach Jared Embick through the 2022 season.

Embick has compiled a 94-30-13 record in six seasons as Akron's head coach. He has led the Zips to six NCAA tournaments, three College Cup appearances and a berth in the 2018 national championship game. Akron's 94 wins during that span lead all of men's Division I.

"I am happy to extend my contract at Akron," Embick said in a statement. "I would like to thank our athletic director Larry Williams and the board of trustees for their support and belief in our program.

"The university as a whole and the community have always been very supportive of the program and our student-athletes. Together we have built something unique and special with the soccer program at Akron, a tradition of excellence on and off the field. I know we still have many goals we want to achieve. We want to continue to work together with the university, the students, the Northeast Ohio and Akron community to continue to make this a program we can all be proud of."

In each of Embick's six seasons, Akron has captured either the regular and postseason Mid American Conference titles, including winning both in four of those campaigns.
