=== TCU and head coach Dougherty agree on multi-year extension ===

Fort Worth, TX (Sports Network) – TCU and men’s head basketball coach Neil
Dougherty have agreed on a multi-year contract extension. As per university
policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Dougherty will enter his third season as coach of the Horned Frogs. He has
compiled a 21-36 record at TCU, including a 12-17 mark during the 2003-04

“I feel like we are headed in the right direction as well,” said Dougherty. “I
feel good about the confidence that (athletic director) Eric Hyman and the
university have shown. We knew this program would take some time to build, but
we believe we now have a solid foundation. That foundation gives us a chance
to win games as well as to represent the university in the right way.”

The 43-year-old Dougherty was hired as the 18th head coach at the school in
March, 2002. He previously served as an assistant coach at Kansas, South
Carolina, Vanderbilt and Drake.

Dougherty started his coaching career as the head coach of his alma mater,
Cameron University, from 1984-88.
