AP source: Fisher gets 3-year extension from SDSU
The Associated Press
SAN DIEGO (AP) A person with knowledge of the deal says San Diego State and basketball coach Steve Fisher have agreed to a three-year contract extension.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the school hadn't announced the extension. SDSU scheduled a news conference for 11:30 a.m. PST Wednesday regarding the future of the men's basketball program.
The school said Fisher, in his 16th season at SDSU, and athletic director Jim Sterk will attend.
Fisher is in the final year of a four-year contract extension. He has said he would be open to remaining beyond that deal, which includes a clause that his long-time assistant, Brian Dutcher, is the head-coach-in-waiting.
Fisher has revived a moribund program, leading SDSU to eight NCAA tournament appearances, including two Sweet 16 appearances.
