GRAND FORKS — The summer recruiting season for the University of North Dakota’s Ashley Hardee is heating up, and the coach has some new firepower to bring to potential future players.
Hardee has received a one-year contract extension that runs through the 2016 season, the school announced Tuesday.
“I can communicate with parents about long-term goals,” Hardee said. “Getting that done before camps really get going this summer is great.”
Hardee’s base salary is $83,078.
Through his first three seasons as head coach, Hardee led UND to three straight Great West Conference tournament championships and a 73-16 (.820) overall record, including a 31-3 (.912) conference mark.
A two-time GWC Coach of the Year, Hardee guided UND to GWC regular season titles in 2009 and 2010 and will lead his program into the Big Sky Conference in 2012.
Hardee’s teams have gone 30-2 (.938) at home and 27-6 (.818) on the road during his first three seasons and have reached the 20-win plateau in each of those years.
