Report: SIU, Lennon Agree to Contract Extension
Mario Moccia tells the (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan the Salukis reached the deal with 53-year-old Dale Lennon as the coach enters the final year of his contract. The Salukis finished 7-5 last season in a four-way tie for second place in the Missouri Valley Conference.
Lennon signed a five-year contract in 2008 and got a one-year extension through next season. Moccia says Lennon will make the same amount - a base salary of $200,000 - in the latest extension.
