KENT, Ohio, April 12 (UPI) -- Kent State University announced Wednesday that men's head basketball coach Jim Christian has signed a new seven-year contract with the school.

The deal will keep the 2006 Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year at Kent State through the 2012-13 season.

"Jim Christian is one of the most respected basketball coaches in the country and I am so pleased to have Jim signed at Kent State through 2013," Kent State director of athletics Laing Kennedy said. "He represents the quality, energy and enthusiasm that has led Kent State to be the pre-eminent program in the MAC and one of the most successful Division I programs in the country."

Christian led the Golden Flashes to a 22-8 regular-season record last season, including a 15-3 mark in the MAC, and KSU won the MAC Tournament title for the fourth time in the last eight years.

In his four years at KSU, Christian's teams are 89-40 and have won at least 20 games each season.
