Towson extends Kennedy’s contract

Towson, MD (Sports Network) – Towson University announced Monday that men’s
head basketball coach Pat Kennedy has agreed to a contract extension that will
run through the 2010-11 season.

The Tigers have improved each year under Kennedy’s stewardship, and posted a
15-17 record this past season, which is the most wins for the club in 11
years.

“Since I arrived on campus, I’ve been very impressed with the job Pat has done
to build a strong foundation for this basketball program,” athletic director
Mike Hermann said. “The program has made great strides in his time here, and
it remains a feather in Towson’s cap to have a coach with Pat’s credentials
leading its program. Pat has turned around programs before, and he understands
the strategy and patience required. The next few years are very exciting with
the continued maturation of our program, along with the planned $30 million
renovation of the Towson Center. I look forward to working with Pat on a
bright future for Towson basketball.”

The 2006-07 campaign was Kennedy’s 27th as a head coach. He has 449 career
victories, which ranks him among the top 25 active winningest Division I
coaches.

He has taken teams to that NCAA Tournament on eight different
occasions, including a trip to the Elite Eight in 1992-93 with Florida State.
Kennedy has also made stops in DePaul and Montana, among others.
