Said Painter: "I am extremely excited about continuing my career at Purdue. I believe we have built something very special. At the same time, I feel we have much more ahead of us to accomplish.

"At the end of the day, my heart is at Purdue, and this is a place where I want to win a national championship."

No terms of the new contract were given.
