ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -New Mexico gave men's basketball coach Steve Alford a three-year contract extension that runs through the 2015-16 season.
``This is another example of what I have said all along - that I am committed to being a Lobo,'' Alford said Monday.
The contract extension ``shows our commitment to coach Alford and his commitment to the University of New Mexico,'' athletic director Paul Krebs said during a news conference.
Alford, who left Iowa and the Big Ten to take over New Mexico's struggling program, just wrapped up the first year of his original six-year contract.
He guided the Lobos, who went 15-17 last season, to a third-place finish in the Mountain West Conference at 11-5 and an overall record of 24-9. The regular-season victories tied a school record.
New Mexico went to the NIT and lost 68-66 at California in the first round.
