Randy Bennett has inked a new 10-year deal.

According to a source close to the Saint Mary's program, the Gaels head coach - who has a 208-112 mark in his decade at the helm - signed the deal earlier this week.

The deal goes through the 2021-22 campaign.

Bennett has won at least 25 games each of the past four seasons and led the Gaels to the Sweet 16 two years ago.

Saint Mary's should have a chance to go to another NCAA tournament (Bennett has been three times in his tenure) this season despite losing point guard Mickey McConnell.

The Gaels return all of their other starters - including all-league guys Matthew Dellavedova and Rob Jones.

Yes it is a great deal for St. Marys to sign up a very good head coach in Randy Bennett to a very long contract for 10 years but I'm sure the buyout is low and from all the rumors spreading that if Herb Sendek has another bad season at Arizona State again that there is no doubt that ASU will bring their alumni Bennett back to the desert so let's hope for your sake Gaels fans that your beloved school has a huge buyout clause if not Bennett will be a Sun Devil after this upcoming season for sure.

As long as he does not end up like Bill Grier.  He really needs to get it together at USD.  Its one thing to lose, another to have a point shaver on your team.  Still, kudos to Ken Rancifer.

good for St. Mary's, Hopefully he can keep them on their winning ways. The WCC needs them to stay competitive for the good of the league.
