Georgia State men’s basketball coach Ron Hunter has agreed to a new six-year contract that runs through 2018.
He hasn’t signed the contract yet, but the details have been agreed upon and he is expected to sign it next week. Financial terms haven’t been disclosed.
Hunter guided the Panthers to a 22-12 record last season, his first at the school. It was the second-best record in school history.
His previous five-year contract had a $300,000 annual base salary.
Neither Hunter nor athletic director Cheryl Levick could be reached for comment.
Hunter brought in a deep and talented recruiting class for the upcoming season that includes his son R.J.
The team will open the season at Duke on Nov. 9.
Before being hired at Georgia State, Hunter coached at IUPUI for 17 seasons, winning 274 games. He has a career record of 296-231.
