UCLA extends baseball coach John Savage through 2017

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

The Bruins' manager had his deal extended by two years on Thursday.

The UCLA Bruins have one of the premier baseball programs in the nation right now. They seem to always be in contention for the College World Series each summer, and they're a force to be reckoned with in the competitive Pac-12. On Thursday, UCLA announced they had extended manager John Savage through the 2017 season. His old deal was set to expire in 2015.

"UCLA has been a special place for me and my family," Savage said. "I am grateful to Dan Guerrero and the administration for allowing me to build on the success that we've had in recent years and to continue that success for years to come."

This past year, UCLA compiled a 48-16 record, which gave them a No. 2 overall seed for the NCAA tournament. The Bruins were eventually eliminated in the quarterfinals stage after losing to eventual champion Arizona, as well as Florida State.

UCLA is expected to finish near the top of the Pac-12 yet again in 2013.
