Johnny Dawkins Inks Two-Year Contract Extension

A report released by Stanford confirms that current head coach Johnny Dawkins has inked a new two-year extension with the school.

Dawkins was hired back in 2008 and led the Cardinals to a 49-48 record in his first three seasons with the program.

"I am thrilled to extend my affiliation with Stanford University," Dawkins said in a report released by the school.

"Not only am I excited about the future of our basketball program, but proud to be part of a world-renowned university and athletic department."

Stanford is headed towards success with Dawkins at the helm and his nucleus of young talent.

His recruiting efforts have certainly been felt as he continues to lure in elite talent. He has gained the trust of his AD Bob Bowlsby and everyone affiliated with the program.

"I am very excited about the future of our basketball program under coach Dawkins," Bowlsby said.

"Johnny and his staff have recruited very well and are on the brink of some very fun years ahead. Our team is young but very talented and I am confident of the growth and maturation in the years ahead. Johnny has done a tremendous job of leading our basketball program and is a perfect fit at Stanford.
