FULLERTON, Calif. -- Cal State Fullerton coach Bob Burton, who led the Titans to a Big West Conference title and their first trip to the NCAA tournament in 30 years, signed a five-year contract extension Monday.

Burton, the winningest coach in school history, is 92-60 in five seasons with the Titans.

"I think Bob's record speaks for itself and we are delighted we are able to keep him at Fullerton," athletic director Brian Quinn said. "Not only have we enjoyed four consecutive winning seasons, but seven of his players are graduating in 2008."

The Titans went a school Division I-record 24-9 last season and earned a share of the Big West regular season title.
