BATON ROUGE, LA — Tuesday, Southern announced the school reached a deal to extend the contract of men's head basketball coach Roman Banks.
In 2012, Banks led the team to the NCAA tournament and the SWAC championship.
"Detail are forthcoming," said Athletics Director Dr. William Broussard.
Southern finished the season 23-10 and almost upset the top seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
It was the school's first trip to the NCAA tournament since 2006.
