College Basketball Betting- Cremins signs extension through 2014-Online Sportsbook

Cremins signs extension College of Charleston athletic director Joe Hull announced Friday that men's basketball coach Bobby Cremins has signed a two-year contract extension that runs through the 2013-14 season.

The Cougars have posted a 65-37 record and made a pair of Southern Conference championship game appearances during Cremins' three years at the helm.

Now, with Wildcats' star Stephen Curry gone to the NBA, College of Charleston likely will be the favorite to win the SoCon title -- and return Cremins to the NCAA college basketball betting tournament.

"Yeah, we hope to get there one day," he said. "We'll see."

Charleston returns one of the Southern Conference's top players in Andrew Goudelock, who averaged 16.7 points a game -- fourth-best in the league -- and made the postseason all-conference first team. The schedule, though, could make things difficult with games against Clemson, Tennessee and, in Charleston, defending NCAA college basketball betting champion North Carolina.

"I love online basketball betting at College of Charleston and I'm excited about the direction of the program," said Cremins. "I really appreciate the support of the College of Charleston and its administration." Cremins made a name for himself with Georgia Tech, guiding the program to 14 winning seasons and 14 postseason berths in his 19 years as bench boss. The Yellow Jackets won three Atlantic Coast Conference tournament titles, one ACC regular-season crown and reached the Final Four in 1990. He departed as the school's all-time winningest coach.

"We are thrilled to have Bobby Cremins as our head basketball coach," said Hull.

"Bobby is a proven winner, a terrific person and a great fit for the College of Charleston." Cremins' trophy case is also full of personal accolades, taking home National Coach of the Year honors in 1985 and 1990, while capturing ACC Coach of Year in 1983, 1985 and 1996.

When the wins didn't come as frequently, Cremins was let go by Georgia Tech after the 2000 season. He spent his time as a college basketball analyst and playing tennis on Hilton Head -- until joining the College basketball betting of Charleston.

Cremins would be nearing 67 when his new deal runs out. He's watched Penn State's Joe Paterno coach into his 80s and isn't ready to put a time limit on his basketball coaching career.
