Nate Oats gets contract extended and nice raise to boot

Link

Generally I am against doing this sort of thing early on in a coaching contract (got burnt by Grant and Gottfried before), but in this case I get it. Oats would be a highly sought after coach and extending him with the payraise ($3.225 mil/yr) makes poaching him less obtainable unless it was a Kentucky or North Carolina type school calling.

Being honest, I was iffy about him being hired as more often than not the mid major coaches flame out at Power 5 schools, but I admit I was wrong. 

Hopefully this turns into a bigger investment into basketball itself (maybe a new arena down the road).
