Fordham men?s basketball coach gets contract extension

Fordham University decided to slam dunk a deal to extend the contract of the men?s basketball coach.

Coach Dereck Whittenburg was given a contract extension through 2010. Fordham Executive Director of Athletics Frank McLauglin announced the deal. The financial terms of the contract have not been released.

Whittenburg?s eight conference wins in the A-10 division were the most by a Fordham team since the Rams joined the Atlantic 10 for the 1995-1996 season.
