North Dakota State signs men’s basketball coach through 2022

June 6, 2019

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota State University has added two years onto the contract of men’s basketball coach David Richman.

School athletic director Matt Larsen says the extension runs through April 2022 for Richman, who has led the Bison to two NCAA tournament appearances in his five seasons as coach. Terms of the extension were not disclosed.

Richman has an overall record of 96-67, including a 19-16 mark last season when his team got hot at the end of the season and won the Summit League tournament. The Bison defeated North Carolina Central in a First Four game to kick off the NCAA tournament and then lost to top-seeded Duke.

The 41-year-old Richman, a Wahpeton native, was an assistant with the Bison for 11 years before he was named head coach in 2014.
