BALTIMORE, July 9 (UPI) -- The University of Maryland-Baltimore County Tuesday signed men's basketball coach Tom Sullivan to a two-year extension through the 2006-07 season.
Entering his eighth season at UMBC, Sullivan previously had signed a six-year contract through the 2004-2005 season.
"Tom Sullivan has brought UMBC a consistent winner," said Director of Athletics Dr. Charles Brown. "I believe that under his leadership, we will reach our goal of being an NCAA (Tournament) participant."
Under Sullivan, the Retrievers put together back-to-back winning records over the last two seasons for the first time in their Division I history. UMBC finished 20-9 in 2001-02 and tied for second in the Northeast Conference.
Sullivan, 52, started off 10-44 at UMBC, but is 82-61 over the last five years.
