Penders earns contract extension

Houston, TX (Sports Network) – The University of Houston Thursday extended the
contract of men’s basketball coach Tom Penders, according to a newspaper in

Penders led the Cougars to an 18-14 record this past season and a berth in the
National Invitation Tournament.

“This is good,” Penders told the Houston Chronicle. “It’s kind of a new
experience for me. It happened very fast. I’ve been at places before where
they say they’ll give you a new contract, but when you finally get it, it’s
got eight new clauses in it. But this was done the right way.”
