UMKC extends men’s basketball coach’s contract

UMKC men’s basketball coach Matt Brown received a contract extension through the 2012-13 season, the school announced today.

In Brown’s first season, he led the Kangaroos to an 11-21 mark, including 6-12 in the Summit League.

Athletic director Tim Hall said he likes how Brown is building for the future. Only senior Dane Brumagin remains from the previous coaching staff.

“Matt Brown is conducting his program in a first class manner in all areas,” Hall said. “He is laying the foundation for future success for UMKC men’s basketball.”
