Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Wooldridge, who has one year left on his original five-year contract, was named the 20th head coach in Kansas State history on March 13, 2000. Despite numerous injuries, he led the Wildcats to a 14-14 overall record and a tie for ninth place in the Big 12 Conference standings with a 6-10 mark this past season. Both the 14 overall wins and six league victories are the most of the Wooldridge era and the most since the 1998-99 squad.
Overall, Wooldridge has a 51-65 (.440) record in four seasons at K-State.
Wooldridge, who served previous head coaching stints at Central Missouri State (1985-91), Texas State (1991-94) and his alma mater Louisiana Tech (1994-98), owns an overall record of 280-212 (.569) in 17 seasons as a head coach.
"I appreciate the confidence and commitment that Dr. (Jon) Wefald and Tim (Weiser) have made to me and my staff," said Wooldridge. "I continue to be excited about the future of this program. With the talented returning players in our program and the addition of a couple of key recruits, I don't think we're too far off from having a team that can challenge the upper echelon programs in the Big 12 Conference."
