From College of Charleston Sports Information….
College of Charleston men’s basketball coach Bobby Cremins has signed a two-year contract extension, athletic director Joe Hull announced on Friday. The extension runs through the 2013-14 campaign.
Cremins, who enters his 29th season as a college head coach and his fourth at Charleston, has led the Cougars to a 65-37 overall record and a pair of Southern Conference championship game appearances. Cremins helped Charleston to a 22-11 record in 2006-07, a 16-17 mark in 2007-08 and a 27-9 record in 2008-09.
Charleston capped last season with its second Southern Conference Tournament title game appearance in three years under Cremins. Cremins, who earned his 500th career win in December with a victory over Coastal Carolina, led the Cougars to the second round of the College Basketball Invitational (CBI).
The season included a pair of wins over Davidson and an overtime upset of Cremins’ alma mater South Carolina, 82-80. Jermaine Johnson, Tony White, Jr. and Andrew Goudelock all surpassed the 1,000-point plateau for their careers. Goudelock was a unanimous All-SoCon first team selection, while Johnson earned third team honors from the league’s media.
“I love it at College of Charleston and I’m excited about the direction of the program,” said Cremins. “I really appreciate the support of the College of Charleston and its administration.”
“We are thrilled to have Bobby Cremins as our head basketball coach,” added Hull. “Bobby is a proven winner, a terrific person and a great fit for the College of Charleston.”
The Bronx, N.Y. native, who coached six seasons at Appalachian State (1976-81, 100-70) and 19 at Georgia Tech (1982-2000, 354-237), sports a 519-344 (.601) overall career record. He led Appalachian State to one NCAA Tournament berth and Georgia Tech to nine.
