SAN DIEGO (AP) -University of San Diego coach Bill Grier has agreed to a contract extension after leading the Toreros to the NCAA tournament in his first season.
Terms of the extension weren't announced. Grier, a longtime assistant at Gonzaga, was hired last March after Brad Holland was fired.
The Toreros (21-13) upset Gonzaga to win the West Coast Conference tournament. They will play Connecticut on Friday at Tampa, Fla., in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
``I'm certainly excited about our future here and hopefully we can build off of this season,'' Grier said in a statement released by the school.
