Ogden, Utah - Weber State University announced today that head men's basketball coach Randy Rahe has agreed to a two-year contract extension that will keep him on the Wildcat sidelines through the 2011-2012 season.
Rahe originally signed a four-year contract in March 2006 when he became head coach of the men's basketball team at WSU. In his first season with the Wildcats he led the team to a 20-12 record and a tie for the Big Sky Conference regular-season title. The Wildcats then won the postseason conference tournament and earned a berth in the NCAA Division I men's basketball tournament.
For his efforts, Rahe was named the 2006-07 Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year and the District VIII Coach of the Year by the United States Basketball Writers Association.
"Coach Rahe has accomplished a great deal in his first year, and we hope to build on the excitement and enthusiasm the team generated this season," said WSU President Ann Millner.
"This is a long-term commitment to running a high-quality, competitive men's basketball program," said Jerry Graybeal, WSU athletic director.
Financial terms of the contract were not immediately available.
Rahe was named head coach of the Wildcats after two years as an assistant coach at the University of Utah. Prior to joining the Utes, Rahe spent a total of 13 years as an assistant with Stew Morrill, including six years at Utah State University.
