According to the's Doug Haller, the ASU men's basketball program will be keeping head coach Herb Sendek on as the Arizona Board of Regents has approved a new two-year contract extension to keep Sendek in Tempe for the foreseeable future. 

Sendek's salary will stay put at at $1.2 million per season, consisting of a base salary of $295,000 with additional payments to the tune of $905,000. It could be bumped up at the beginning of July each summer, wth the increase amount decided by Lisa Love, ASU's current Vice President of Athletics, and subject to the approval from ASU President Michael Crow as well as the board.
