Saul Phillips earns contract extension at North Dakota State

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

Coming off a second 20-plus-win season in his six-year career with the school, coach Saul Phillips was rewarded with a five-year extension by North Dakota State on Thursday.

With incentives included, Phillips stands to make more than $1 million over the course of the contract, which ends in 2017-18. NDSU went 24-10 last season but missed the NCAA tournament after falling to South Dakota State in the league tournament final.

The 40-year-old Phillips will now start at $175,000 per year in base salary. Bonuses, naturally, come with winning league titles and making the NCAA tournament.

Phillips is 108-77 all-time with the Bison, reaching the NCAA tourney in 2009 as a 14 seed.
