CLEVELAND (AP) -Gary Waters has a new five-year contract with Cleveland State after coaching the Vikings to their first postseason appearance in 20 years.
Waters had three years left on his original deal, but the five-year rollover eliminates it.
The 57-year-old Waters took over at Cleveland State in 2006 after spending five years at Rutgers. The Vikings went 10-21 in Waters' first season before going 21-13 and making the National Invitation Tournament last season.
Cleveland State was just the 16th program in NCAA history to go from losing 20 games in one season to winning 20 the next.
Waters, who also coached at Kent State, has four starters back from last year's team.
