SMART CONTRACT
Mon, 04 Apr 2011 05:55 PM EDT

VCU’s successful coach Shaka Smart announced that he’ll stay with the Rams for the future eight seasons after leading them to an unbelievable Final Four run. Smart agreed to a multi-year contract at Virginia Commonwealth that will pay him approximately $1.2 million in base pay annually, according to sources. Vegas odds.

Norwood Teague, athletic director at VCU said “We are honored that he has decided to stay a VCU Ram” after Smart signed the contract. “He exemplifies everything that is right about college athletics, and VCU is ecstatic about the future under his leadership.”

The 2-year-veteran coach led the improbable VCU from one of the “First Four” games in the NCAA tournament to upsets of well-known programs including Georgetown, Purdue and Kansas to make the Final Four. VCU, who had a record of 28-12 during the season, turned out to be only the third No. 11 seed to get that far, losing to Butler 70-62 in Saturday’s national semifinals.

Making that rally even more striking: Four of the Rams’ five tournament victories came by double-digit margins; including the 71-61 triumph versus the No. 1 seeded Jayhawks for the Southwest Regional championship.

That impressive run/dash had Smart repeatedly pointed out for other coaching vacancies. Team spokesman Scott Day said North Carolina State had just presented Smart the job to substitute Sidney Lowe, who resigned in March after the Tar Heels got thrown out of the tourney. Betting lines.

The 33-year-old Smart, has a 55-21 career record at VCU and guided the Rams to the CBI championship in his rookie year as a coach. The 55 victories are the most for any two-year period in program history and it marked the first year VCU won more than one encounter in the NCAA tournament.

“I’m extremely grateful for the belief that VCU president Michael Rao and Norwood Teague have shown and continue to show in our coaching staff and basketball program,” Shaka Smart said in a previous statement during an interview.

There was no doubt that the VCU Rams were the underdogs during the tournament. They managed to earn the respect on and off the court throughout the journey, beating all-time favorites and first seeded teams along the way.

The school announced Smart had a base salary of $325,000 this season and was due to make $640,000 in all due to performance bonuses. Undoubtedly Shaka Smart surpassed all expectations and received a deserving big contract. Sports scores.
