UH baseball coach Mike Trapasso has reached an agreement on an multi-year contract extension.
Trapasso’s contract was set to expire in August.
But Trapasso and athletic director David Matlin told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser a deal has been reached, although details will not be discussed until after the 2018 season.
The ‘Bows are 21-15 overall and 7-5 in the Big West in Trapasso’s 17th season as UH head coach.
Trapasso and Les Murakami are the only head coaches in the program’s Division I history.

The defense has finished strong as the Warriors completed the instruction part of spring training. Tomorrow’s spring fling will focus on a scrimmage.
Defensive coordinator Corey Batoon has installed the base concepts of the new multi-look defense. The Warriors have the capability of using different fronts, personnel and sub-packages. What’s apparent in practices is the communication between players. It’s also nice to see that the players are no longer robotic and free to operate within the framework of the system. Translations: Players can make plays.
The coaches have singled out two defenders — interior lineman Blessman Taala, who has fully recovered from a knee injury that led to his delayed enrollment at UH, and Jeremiah Pritchard, who might be the hardest-hitting UH linebacker since Blaze Soares.
