BOZEMAN -- Montana State and men’s basketball coach Brad Huse have agreed on a two-year contract extension.
MSU athletic director Peter Fields announced the deal Wednesday. The contract, which awaits final approval by the state Board of Regents, will retain Huse for his eighth and ninth seasons with the Bobcats.
The 2012-13 season was the final year of a three-year contract extension Huse signed in 2010. Huse reportedly made $113,824 this past season, his seventh year at MSU.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported in March that Fields and Huse were working on an extension.
Huse and the Bobcats went 13-17 last year, and 10-10 in the Big Sky Conference. Montana State earned the No. 4 seed to the Big Sky Conference postseason tournament, but lost out in the first round with a 69-56 defeat to Northern Colorado.
In seven seasons with the Bobcats, Huse is 93-117 overall, a winning percentage of .443. He is 55-61 in league games (.474).
MSU qualified for the conference tournament in each of Huse’s seven previous seasons, and made a run to the league championship game in 2009. But since then the Bobcats are 53-66 overall, 34-35 in Big Sky games and 0-4 in the conference tournament.
Montana State hasn’t made the NCAA tournament since 1996.
