Kent State's Ford gets 2-year extension
KENT, Ohio -- Kent State coach Geno Ford has agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension with the school.
Ford's new deal runs through 2014-15 and will pay him a base salary of $300,000 per year, athletic director Laing Kennedy said Friday.
In just his second season, Ford was honored as the Mid-American Conference's coach of the year after leading the Golden Flashes to a 24-10 record and an appearance in the NIT.
Ford is 43-25 in two seasons at Kent State, one of 11 schools to win at least 20 games in 11 of the past 12 years.
