TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Leonard Hamilton is staying at Florida State after agreeing to a new five-year deal.
Hamilton had visited with Memphis officials about the opening there created by John Calipari's departure to Kentucky last week.
Hamilton is 131-96 in seven seasons at Florida State after taking the school to its first NCAA tournament bid in 11 years. The Seminoles also defeated North Carolina last month to reach the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament finals for the first time.
Hamilton returns with three starters from this year's team, but loses starting guard Toney Douglas, who set a new single season scoring record this season.
