Rensselaer coach Seth Appert has signed a seven-year contract extension with the school, taking him through the the 2017-18 season.

Appert, in his fifth year as RPI's coach, led the Engineers to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1996 with a 20-12-5 season. RPI qualified despite losing in the first round of the ECAC tournament to 12th-seeded Colgate.

After three rebuilding years, Appert led RPI to 18 wins last season.

In five seasons, Appert is currently 69-97-23. The Engineers face North Dakota in the Midwest Regional on Saturday.
