OXFORD, Ohio (AP) -Miami of Ohio has decided to keep Charlie Coles, who overcame life-threatening heart problems to coach last season.
The 67-year-old coach got a three-year contract extension Thursday, giving him a chance to add to his school-record total of 224 wins in 13 seasons. The main question for Coles was his health - he had four operations last year, including major heart surgery.
He returned for the final season on his contract and led the RedHawks to a 17-13 record. They lost to Akron in the quarterfinals of the Mid-American Conference tournament.
