Brown earns contract extension

Mt. St. Mary's head coach Milan Brown and the University agreed to a five-year contract extension recently. I believe that extends Brown's deal through the 2014 season, but it may actually take it through 2015. I'll try to check on that for you.

The Mount under the direction of Brown won the NEC Championship this year and an opening round NCAA playoff game, before losing to North Carolina in the first round.

Brown has brought some fine talent to the school since taking over for the legendary Jim Phelan. He finally turned that talent loose this year and the results were rewarding. He deserved the extension and has this program moving in the right direction.

Seven of the top eight players from this year's championship team will return next season, with the majority of those having at least two years of eligibility remaining.
