Report: Air Force's Dave Pilipovich to sign five-year extension

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

It appears Dave Pilipovich will be rewarded for a stellar first full season on the job in 2012-13.

The Air Force head coach is set to sign a five-year contract extension, USA Today reported on Tuesday night.

Pilipovich replaced Jeff Reynolds in February 2012 and was named head coach a month later. During his first full season with the Falcons, Pilipovich led Air Force to an 18-14 record, going 8-8 in the Mountain West. The Falcons earned a bid to the CIT, only the seventh postseason appearance in school history.

Before being named coach last year, Pilipovich had been an assistant for five seasons and also worked at Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Robert Morris, Georgia State and Florida Atlantic. In all, he had been an assistant for 26 years.
