The Air Force Academy and men’s basketball head coach Jeff Reynolds have agreed on a new five-year contract that runs through the 2012-13 season, according to an announcement today from Director of Athletics Dr. Hans Mueh. Details of the contract are still being worked out and are going through the Academy process.

Reynolds, who was promoted to head coach on April 17, 2007, completed his first season as head coach at Air Force with a 16-14 overall record. He guided the Falcons to a fifth-place finish in the Mountain West Conference after being picked eighth in the preseason poll by conference coaches and media, the greatest margin between prediction and actual finish in the MWC last season.

Reynolds, who enters the ‘08-09 campaign with a 98-48 career record in five seasons, coached one of the best players in program history, Tim Anderson, who was named the Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Year and second-team all-conference after leading the team in scoring and the MWC in steals.

Last season, Reynolds became the first head coach in school history to win his first three games at Air Force and the fourth to post a winning season in his first campaign.
