Fresno State men’s basketball head coach Rodney Terry has received a three year contract extension that will keep in Fresno through the 2018-19 season.
Terry led the Bulldogs to a 21-18 record last season after going 13-20 and 11-19, respectively, in his first two seasons.
"Rodney Terry has changed the culture of our Fresno State men's basketball program," Fresno State Athletic Director Thomas Boeh said. "He has brought back the academic standards that we expect of our Bulldog student-athletes and the team delivered an exciting run on the court late in the season and into postseason play.”
The deal, announced by Boeh Monday, adds an additional three years to Terry’s contract, which still has two years remaining.
"I am honored and thankful to Dr. Castro and Thomas Boeh for their continued support and commitment they have given to me and my staff," Terry said. "A culture based on hard work, consistency, and representing this great community has been established over the past three years, and we will continue to build on that foundation into the future.
“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to continue to lead our program into next season and beyond."
Since Terry's first season at Fresno State, there has been a significant rise in fan support for the program, according to gobulldogs.com.
Through the 19 home games the Bulldogs played during the 2013-14 season, over 128,000 fans were in attendance, up from the 2011-12 season which saw just over 91,000 fans.
“Staff continuity, support from our administration, as well as our outstanding Fresno State fan base, has made this a great place to be,” Terry said. ”I look forward to many years of success for Bulldog Basketball."
