“That’s the fun thing that goes with it, and the extension is a real positive. It tells you, we’re in a good place, and the program has been rising and we’re going to continue to do those things. When you have that, you’re able to foster that with the kids.”

Legette-Jack enters her 10th season as UB’s women’s basketball coach. She is 177-107 at the helm of the program, and she has led the Bulls to eight straight winning seasons, including a 15-9 record in 2020-21.

Legette-Jack’s previous contract ran through March 31, 2024. Legette-Jack earns an annual base salary of $270,000, and annual additional compensation of $75,000.

Legette-Jack’s new contract extension includes an agreement that the school would owe her $600,000 if she is terminated by UB before March 31, 2022. That would drop to $450,000 if she is terminated between April 1, 2022, and March 31, 2023; to $275,000 between April 1, 2023, and March 31, 2024, and to $150,000 between April 1, 2024, and March 31, 2025.

If Legette-Jack leaves prior to April 5, 2022, she would owe UB $100,000, and that figure would drop by $25,000 each year. She would not owe UB any money if she leaves between April 6, 2024, and April 5, 2025.

Legette-Jack’s amended contract also eliminates a clause that would give her a $7,500 bonus if the Bulls win the MAC East title.
