VCU Basketball On Shaka Smart Remaining Head Coach: 'We Are Honored'

Shaka Smart is remaining the head coach of VCU basketball after becoming the sport’s hottest prospect by leading an unknown team to the biggest stage. The program’s athletic director, Norwood Teague, sent out a statement on the occasion of Smart signing a new contract. Teague:

True to form, Coach Smart’s primary concerns were about his players, coaches and the overall support of the basketball program. We are honored that he has decided to stay a VCU Ram. He exemplifies everything that is right about college athletics, and VCU is ecstatic about the future under his leadership.

Smart himself:

I’m very excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for both our program and our university.

It’s also revealed that he will find himself having made just shy of a $1 million this season, having racked up $640,000 in bonuses for taking VCU as far as he did.
