Delaware signs head coach Monté Ross to an extension

2 Comments

Monté Ross has reached an agreement on a multi-year contract extension with Delaware, sources told NBCSports.com.

An official announcement is expected to be released this afternoon.

Ross, who has been at Delaware for nine years, was in the final year of his contract this year despite coming off a CAA regular season title and an NCAA tournament trip in 2014 that capped the best seasons in program history, a three-year stretch where the Blue Hens were 39-13.

In 2014-2015, Delaware went just 10-20, but Ross had a team with just one junior and one senior on the roster. Once senior guard Kyle Anderson returned from injury, the Blue Hens finished 9-9 in league play and beat some of the top teams in the conference. With freshmen Kory Holden and Chivarsky Corbett and sophomore Cazmon Hayes both returning, the future is bright in Newark.

The extension was first reported by DelawareOnline.com.
