Fresh off an NCAA Regionals appearance last season, Maryland gymnastics head coach Brett Nelligan had his contract extended five years on Wednesday. The new deal goes through 2027.
Having been in charge of the program for 14 years, Nelligan has made 11 NCAA Regional appearances in his time at Maryland. He has a 206-164 overall record, and the team went 18-9 last season.
Despite finishing sixth place at the Big Ten Tournament last season, 2021 marked the highest the team has finished in the event in eight years. Nelligan said that with things on the rise, his expectations remain high.
“The Maryland gymnastics family is strong and what we achieved together last season was incredible. This season we have our sights set even higher, it’s a great time to be a Terp,” he said in a release.
“Brett has been a part of the Maryland gymnastics family for decades and we are thrilled that he will continue to lead our program for years to come,” athletic director Damon Evans added. “The future of Maryland gymnastics is very bright under Brett’s leadership.”
