Ben Jacobson gets new UNI deal
Northern Iowa's Ben Jacobson has signed a 10-year contract extension with the school, the coach told ESPN.com's Andy Katz on Friday.
Jacobson, who was considered a candidate for the opening at Minnesota, has coached the Panthers since 2006. Northern Iowa, which has won two Missouri Valley Conference titles under him, was 21-14 overall this season and finished third (11-7) in the MVC.
The Panthers earlier this week advanced to the semifinal round of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament.
