After a successful trip to the NCAA tournament, the former Maryland assistant has been rewarded by the school with a contract extension.

After leading the Loyola Greyhounds to an NCAA tournament bid this season, coach Jimmy Patsos was rewarded with a contract extension according to Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times.

Patsos helped lead the Greyhounds to their first tournament appearance since 1994. While the Greyhounds lost to Ohio State, who made it to the Final Four, Patsos has obviously made an impression on the school since he took the job in 2004.

From 1991-2004 he was an assistant for the Maryland Terrapins, beginning on a volunteer basis. Other highlights for Patsos prior to Loyola's tournament appearance this year was a 72-67 victory over Indiana in December 2009. The Greyhounds also held current NBA player Stephen Curry to no points, thanks to constant double-team defense, in a game against Davidson in November 2008.
